What a happy day Easter was! We joined the Elementary and Preschool classes together for a very special, very energetic Easter celebration :)
We began reading and thinking about what makes us happy? Is it ice cream, is it soccer, is it climbing a tree or dancing? We learned about Jesus's friends, John and Peter and Mary. We learned about how happy they were. Why? Because Jesus was ALIVE!
What does that mean for our kids? We too are so happy that Jesus is alive because for us, it means NEW LIFE! What is new life? We planted seeds and are ready to watch them grow (I hope your seeds start to sprout here in the next few days). This is new life. A baby who is in their mom's belly and then is born? That is new life too! What a gift that we and our kids are given, a new life in Christ.
Next week: Preschool will learn about Jesus and the woman at the well, focusing on what it means to be thirsty and be given water. How Jesus is our living water.
