Sunday 4 April
Use this guide to help your family learn how
God wants us to live in peace with others.
First, watch this video
Then, follow up with the fun activities below!
Colossians 1:20 and John 20:1-18
Activity – Egg Toss
What you need
An egg; a sheet or large towel you don’t mind getting dirty
What You Do
Tell your child you’re going to play a game. (If possible, go outside for this one!)
Stand an arm’s length apart in the middle of the sheet, facing each other, and toss the egg back and forth. For each turn, whoever has the egg should take one step backward, say one thing that happened in the Bible story, and then toss the egg.
Repeat the process: taking a step back, saying one thing from the story, and then tossing the egg to the other person. Keep going until one of you misses and the egg breaks open.
Talk about the Bible Story
How would you have felt if you were Mary Magdalene and you went to Jesus’ tomb and found it empty?
What did Jesus tell Mary Magdalene to do after she saw Him? (She went to tell the other disciples that she had seen Jesus alive.)
How does Jesus rising from the dead show us that God made peace with us? (Because it proves that God sent His Son to die for us.)
Why does Easter matter? Why do we celebrate Easter?
What changed for us when Jesus died?
Parent: share about a situation where you found something difficult to believe, only to find out later that it was true.
Use this prayer as a guide, either after your discussion or right before bed tonight:
“God, You are faithful. You sent Jesus to be our Savior, just like You promised! God, we are so grateful for Jesus. We’re thankful for His life, death, and resurrection. He has power over sin and power over death. Because of Him, we can have a relationship with You now and forever! Thank You for making a way for us to be with You. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.”
