Sunday Children’s Services 9 and 10:45am
Children ages Pre-K to 6th grade meet in the Purple Room 123 for worship, learning, encouragement and FUN,
all straight from God’s Word! If ever you can’t make it, you can still find what you missed right here on this page,
updated for our children’s services weekly.
We have discovered what Jesus did in this mystery we call Easter.
We’ve looked at prophecies in the Old Testament, and we’ve revealed that Jesus is the Messiah! We’ve learned that Jesus died as a sacrifice for our sins, then rose again and won the victory over sin and death forever!
today’s big question:
This SNEAK PEEK HELPS US TO UNDERSTAND
READ WITH US HERE
What was Jesus’ mission for His disciples? Jesus told them to wait for the Holy Spirit to come upon them, and then go share His good news with the world!
WOW! That’s a really big assignment!
So what do we need to do, detectives?
If you haven’t already, you can start by looking back at the evidence we have already collected in a previous lesson about Jesus’ sacrifice.
Ms. Tammy will help us understand more about what this mystery means for us in this next video.
examine the evidence
Did you know there is more to this mystery than being a great detective?
Jesus wants you to believe and accept personally His sacrifice for your sins. Only you can make that decision for your own life.
Being a disciple starts with believing in Jesus, and it is so much more!
Remember the mission Jesus gave His disciples before He ascended to heaven? He told them to share the gospel with others all around the world.
The gospel is the GOOD NEWS that Jesus died for our sins and rose again so we can receive the gift of eternal life!
God wants the whole world to know this good news, so that all can be saved.
Here is another mystery:
Do you remember that Jesus said He is going to give us power to help us share the gospel message? That power will come when something happens.
Who should we tell?
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
What should we tell?
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but
have eternal life.
Why should we tell?
Jesus wants all of His disciples to tell others about Him! That means YOU, too!
This next video is about a young girl, a lot like you, who finds ways to share the gospel in her everyday life.
How long did Jesus walk on earth after He rose from the grave?
- How many people did Jesus appear to?
What did Jesus promise would happen before He left?
What mission did Jesus give His followers?
What happened to Jesus after that?
What do you think it means to be His witnesses?
How can you be a witness for Jesus?
close the case
Thousands of years after Jesus’ resurrection, we still celebrate that Jesus is alive! We can continue celebrating and sharing the good news that Jesus died for our sins and rose again so that we can receive eternal life!
It looks like we have all the clues we need to answer the BIG QUESTION: What do we need to do?
Even though Jesus doesn’t live with us on earth right now, He wants us all to become His disciples! We can do that by
and sharing Jesus
We can celebrate Jesus’ sacrifice every day, not just at Easter time. But celebrating these very special days each year at Easter time is one way to remember God’s amazing GIFT and share His goodness with the world.
Mystery solved. That’s a GREAT BIG mission from our Lord, Jesus!
And that solves this case! great work, detectives!
Here’s a playlist for you to praise God all week!
I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together. Psalm 34:1
Here’s a coloring page for younger ones to remember this lesson.
Hide God’s Word in your heart by memorizing this verse: Acts 13:38. Practice by telling others!
