One thing that I knew would happen, but didn’t fully anticipate just how “big” it would be, is the number of “yeses” we would get during this Journey to Easter. I mean, I prayed for people to say, “yes” to helping here and there, but it have been so humbled by not only the quantity, but the enthusiasm, excitement, and willingness to be a servant-leader that comes along with each one.
For this morning’s activity, the children were to make Easter Story trees. I found the initial idea online, but unfortunately it was a dead link on Pinterest…just a photo. If you can help me give credit for the concept, please do!
Since all I had was a photo, I asked sweet Claire, an artist in our church, if she could create some line drawings in the shapes of Easter eggs for the children to color. Each egg has a picture of a different symbol to represent part of the Bible story spanning from Palm Sunday-Easter morning.
Or hope is that by Easter, the children will have many tools that they have created to help them retell the Easter Story.
We also collectively made 4 more trees to deliver to some of our Special Care members who are not able to come to church.
