Good Morning Parents and Teachers!
SUNDAY SCHOOL- Easter can be very confusing for children. First there is Palm Sunday where we get these long leafs and we celebrate Jesus. Then there is Good Friday where Jesus is killed and we are sad and then two days later we celebrate because Jesus is Alive! Yay. But Wait, is Jesus Alive or is Jesus dead? Did Jesus really die or was he just hiding? Sometimes it helps students to grasp the meaning of Easter if they get to see it reenacted. The Stations of the Cross Children’s Service is a good example of breaking it all down into little sections to make it easier for our little ones to understand. Reading the Bible together as a family is another way to help your children understand what happened to Jesus when He died. If you read it together your children have time to stop and ask questions.
