Date: Sunday 27th March
Session: Where is Jesus? / Dying and rising in victory
Bible Passage: John 19: 17-30, 20: 1-18
Session Aim: To know that Jesus died and came back to life just as God planned
Easter is a time to celebrate the wonder of God’s love and the power that he gives to us. So with that in mind the session is focusing on the celebration that Jesus rose again for us. I am aware we have little ones with inquisitive minds and therefore this session doesn’t give a great deal of detail about how Jesus died on the cross. The resources we use deliberately give no detail of the painfulness of crucifixion.
The stories of Jesus’ death and resurrection are told together, so that children do not leave the session thinking that Jesus is dead, but can celebrate that he is alive.
We’ll be retelling the story with play dough, balloons and possibly party poppers – exciting hey!
