What We Learned:
Today, your child learned that Jesus did not die in the tomb, but was raised to life. After Jesus was raised from the dead, He went to prepare a place for us, so we can be with Him in Heaven. When we give our heart to Jesus, we become new creations; we become children of God. (Scripture used: Mark 16:1-7, 19)
“In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2NIV
Practice this verse several times with your child during the week. This will not only help your child to remember the verse, but also it will help to reinforce what he or she has learned during class.
Suggested Parent/Child Activity:
During the Easter season, help your child “prepare a place” for Jesus, by looking for outgrown clothes and toys while cleaning up his or her room. Work together with your child to decide which articles of clothing or toys you can take to a donation center, such as Goodwill or to a local church for distribution. Help your child understand that giving is not only for Christmas time. God gave us His son, who died on the cross. This is the greatest gift ever. We can celebrate this gift, by helping others.
Dear Lord, Thank You for this special time of the year when we can remember how wonderful You are. You gave up Your life on the cross, but You were raised to life. Now, because You love us so much, You are preparing a place for us. Let me also prepare myself to be with You. Amen.
