Sunday, March 25th

Hello Parents!

Can you believe it is already Easter time!! We are so excited to see students who we haven't seen in a while! Statistically, most people come to church on Easter Sunday and Christmas. So we want to do what we can to make Easter special as people can reconnect with church, reconnect with people, and most importantly reconnect with the Lord! WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Would you consider making a breakfast casserole or bringing a breakfast item on that day? We want to be able to feed every student a good breakfast and enjoy some fellowship as we share the Gospel! It would be such a blessing for everyone to participate in bringing a breakfast item!!!

Love you all tons, and as always please let us know if we can ever be of assistance for you and your students. We are here for you.

CURRICULUM

Dear parents,
 
We’ve will be wrapping up our series focusing on Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Each week, our students have examined different passages of Scripture to examine the WHAT and the WHY surrounding Jesus’ crucifixion and His empty tomb.
 
In this final lesson, we will explore John 20:18-31, which contains eyewitness accounts of what happened after Jesus rose from the dead and appeared to His disciples. We played particular attention to “doubting” Thomas, who refused to believe that Jesus was alive. From our time together, students were encouraged to personally examine how the Resurrection impacts their lives, both now and for eternity.
 
This week, I encourage you to spend some time talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider building your conversation around these questions:

  • What would it have been like to be one of the disciples in the locked room when Jesus appeared?
  • Why did John give such graphic details about Jesus’ conversation with Thomas?
  • Why did John choose the events and accounts about Jesus that are in his Gospel?

 
Have a spectacular week!
