The Sunday School Zone Buildup To Easter
Beginning with March 3, there are eight Sundays until we’re celebrating the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019. We’d like to invite you to participate in The Sunday School Zone Buildup To Easter; seven weeks of study and inspiration that will encourage you, inform you, challenge you, and prepare you to lead the children under your care to a better understanding of why Jesus had to die and why the resurrection is so important to us today.
The Sunday School Zone Buildup To Easter is completely free and will be easy to follow. In addition to information that will help you grow personally in your understanding of Jesus and the resurrection, you will be directed to lots of free, printable Bible activities that can be used at home or in class to engage your kids in the amazing story of Jesus’ resurrection, including significant highlights from the biblical story that will set the context for a deeper understand of Jesus’ death and resurrection. All you have to do is follow the links you’ll receive each week in The Sunday School Zone Update! Links to the relevant resources will be placed below as the study progresses each week.
We pray God will bless you as you reflect on this special season and prepare yourself to be a better parent or teacher to the little ones under your care!
