D.A.T. #4 | Easter Sunday Edition

ALLELUIA!

Today is Easter Sunday! We hear the story of a surprising thing that helped Jesus' friends move from feeling very sad to feeling great happiness! We celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus. We use the word “Resurrection” to talk about Jesus being alive in a new way. 

On Easter Sunday, Christians in churches everywhere greet each other with words that have been used for hundreds of years. “Christ is risen! Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!”

Check out the Easter Edition of Digital Awesome Time below... and make sure you watch it all the way through, to look out for our special guests!









A Prayer
Loving God, thank You for loving us so much that you sent your son, Jesus to show us how to live and love in this world. Help us to remember what Jesus taught us, as we celebrate Easter. Amen.


A Story from Belinda | I am Not a Worm (by Scott Tulloch)
Click HERE to watch Belinda and Dylan read this cool story, about a caterpillar. 
Seeing as we have some butterfly crafts this week, we were reminded about this rather funny story (although it has quite a surprising and not-so-good ending!) Anyway, hope it makes you smile :o)

3. EASTER HAT
Make or decorate an Easter hat! Here's a photo from several years ago, of our very own Sophia, with her Easter hat made during Awesome Time. 


4. MAKE AN EMPTY CROSS
The cross is a symbol that reminds us of the sadness of Jesus’ death. The empty cross is a reminder that Jesus was and is no longer dead.

Make a cross, from branches, pieces of wood, cardboard, flax, or any other materials you can think of. Send us a picture!


5. MAKE A BUTTERFLY
A butterfly emerging from the cocoon is a symbol metamorphosis, transformation, hope and eternal life. Using old magazines, newspapers, bits of paper, paper plates, or whatever you can find around your house... make an Easter butterfly to represent new life. Don't forget to send us a photo!
