Children and Youth Ministry Update from Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian

April 2nd,2021 Categories: Latest News

Last week, our children finished our close reading of all the Events that led to Easter. We revisited the Palm Sunday Story and discussed the ways each story we had read plays out in Holy Week. This week, we arrive at Easter Morning to celebrate.

At 10 AM, our older students met to read John Luke 19:28-44,. We talked about  how this started the week, how Jesus might be feeling and the ways each story after this fits into Holy Week.

At 10:30 AM, our younger children followed this same practice. We read “Jesus’ Last Days” in our Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible, and discussed the ways each time in the story led to Easter Morning. We sang, prayed, and said goodbye with a blessing.

This week, our students will read the Easter Story along with our congregation. The older children will read John 20:1-18, and the younger ones will read “Jesus Comes Back” in the Tiny Truths Illustrated Bible. 

As we prepare for this Sunday, I sit with you in Good Friday, and hold on to the hope of  Sunday where we will wish one another a Happy Easter!

Joyfully yours,
Kelsey Creech, Resident Seminarian
