Don't Miss This Easter

Don’t Miss This Easter

We will be celebrating Easter week starting Sunday, April 14. Plan on a five minute video each week night evening with a scripture verse, activity, and lesson. Our hope is to guide you through seven meaningful traditions inspired by the people closest to the Savior during His holy week.

 

Rather than celebrating Easter Week by the events that lead up to the crucifixion, this year we will learn more about Easter through the eyes of those who experienced it. Each day will focus on an eyewitness account including Thomas, Mary Magdalene, Simon, Joseph of Arimethea and Nicodemus, the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, and the people of Jerusalem. We will spend some time each day discussing each person’s experience, the lesson they teach us, and we will include a hand’s on activity with every single lesson. We want you to be totally prepared, so we are including a shopping list below so you will have everything on hand!

Celebrating A Christ Centered Easter Children’s Edition

Discover how the people around Jesus during the week of His Crucifixion and Resurrection can lead your family closer to Christ this Easter season. This children's edition of Celebrating a Christ-Centered Easter will guide you through seven meaningful traditions inspired by the people closest to the Savior during His holy week. These simple experiences are not meant to add chores or stress to a reverent holiday season but to offer something different. They will give your family an opportunity to slow down from the candy and egg hunts and instead spend time reflecting on the Savior's ultimate sacrifice and triumphant Resurrection.

This interactive book invites children to get to know various people in Christ's life during those sacred days and to discover the lessons they learned in the encounters with Him. It encourages children to ask what they might have done if they had been there on the days when Jesus was crucified and resurrected. Seven colorful Easter ornaments have been created to accompany the lesson each person teaches. Displaying the ornaments throughout the Easter holiday will remind your children of the lessons they are learning from Christ's magnificent act.
