DID YOU KNOW?: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT ON EASTER
WEEK 1 BIG IDEA: Did you know we can love Jesus more than anything?

SERIES OVERVIEW:

Did you know that the largest Easter egg in the world lives in Vegreville, Canada? Did you know that the most popular Easter candy in the world are Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs? There’s a ton of fun trivia around the theme of Easter but the best questions to ask kids are about Jesus. Did you know we can love Jesus more than anything? Did you know Jesus is king over everything? Did you know Jesus is alive? Did you know we can trust Jesus? Whatever their answer, invite kids to go beyond the facts and win the grand prize of knowing Jesus for themselves!

We’re already here in April looking towards the last few months of ministry together, this year. It’s been an amazing year already, but we still have so much more we want to accomplish! Let’s evaluate some of the most important things we can all be doing to maximize the effectiveness of our time with these kids!

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Volunteer Tip Video #9 from your Volunteer section.

At least once this month, choose a volunteer to celebrate. Add their picture and a few sentences about what makes them awesome!

We know you’re learning a lot about kids while you lead them, so we’d love to learn alongside you. What’s one thing you’ve learned this year that every volunteer should know?
