Elementary, April 17: Jesus’ Resurrection

Hi Journey Kids parents!

Happy Easter! This weekend we are a celebrating the greatest event in human history – the resurrection of Jesus! The empty tomb declares that Jesus has defeated death once and for all. It declares that life – eternal life – is available in Him. It is the best news ever and we can’t wait to celebrate it with your children!

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Jesus’ Resurrection

Big Idea: Jesus defeated death and He gives those who follow Him victory over death too.

The victory Jesus offers over death is available to everyone He chooses to accept it. If you have received His grace, I hope you celebrate this weekend! If you haven’t, I hope you’ll consider what following Jesus could mean for your life – now and into eternity.
