April 12, 2020
DEERMEADOWS HOLY WEEK @ HOME
APRIL 5-12, 2020
Parents: Use your child’s Bible to read through these Scriptures. Use a modern version, too, like the New Living Translation or The Message paraphrase.
EASTER SUNDAY, April 12: JESUS IS ALIVE!
BREATHE (Slow Down): Calm your head, heart, and hands as you slowly breathe in . . . and out. You are receiving Jesus’ peacefulness.
READ: John 20:1-18
WONDER and DISCUSS: What do you imagine Jesus’ friends were thinking when they saw His tomb was empty? Why do you think Jesus’ friend Mary Magdalene didn’t realize she was talking to Jesus? What would you have done when you realized Jesus was alive? Who would you run to tell?
PRAY: Celebrate Jesus’ resurrection by echoing this prayer together (repeating each phrase as it’s read):
Jesus, You are Lord.
Jesus, You are our hope.
Jesus, You won the victory over death.
Jesus, we jump for joy because You are alive!
