Palm Sunday in KidZone
What a great way to start our final lent lesson in KidZone! We put on costumes, grabbed some palms, and went outside to greet Sylvester the donkey as he led us into the service. We were celebrating Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem. And although it was a happy journey, we were headed to complete our lent lessons with the final words of Jesus on the cross. We continued with scenes from our Jesus of Nazareth movie. We heard Jesus say "It is finished. Into thy hands I commit my spirit." Then he died. But, that is certainly not the end of the story. During small group time we talked about how Jesus' words fulfilled the Scriptures. We began work on our Easter craft (jelly bean butterflies!) which we will finish on Easter Sunday.
NEXT WEEK: And speaking of Easter, you won't want to miss the Easter Egg hunt on on Saturday, April 4 at 10AM. Bring your baskets and come meet Larry and Bob from Veggie Tales who will teach us how to discover God's love for us. Then it's off to the hunt for over 1300 eggs. And don't worry about the rain. We will move it all inside if we need to! Easter Sunday we will see the completion of Jesus of Nazareth and celebrate his glorious resurrection. We will finish those jelly bean butterflies, too! Join us Sunday at 10AM.
