CLUE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE EASTER STORY
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: Every Easter, we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.
When we think of Easter, we may think of dying eggs, egg hunts, the Easter bunny, and dressing up in your Sunday best on Easter Sunday. But there’s so much more to Easter than that. What really happened to Jesus over 2,000 years ago, and how does it affect us today? In this series, kids will become detectives to look for clues and discover the true meaning of Easter. Kids will learn about Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey, Jesus celebrating a special meal with His disciples, the crucifixion and resurrection, and Jesus ascending to heaven and giving His followers a special mission.
When the kids have a lot of energy and you’re ready to tell them to sit down and be quiet, remember that having a relationship with God isn’t boring, and church doesn’t have to be boring either! We want kids to laugh and talk and interact and dance and have fun! We want to channel their energy in the right ways. If you need to tell a child to stop talking or moving, give them something else to do instead, such as: look for the answer to a question, help another student, play with a fidget toy, or engage in an activity.
At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!
