Hi parents!

It’s hard to believe, but Easter is almost here. With that in mind, this Sunday we’re learning about the saddest day of the Holy Week—the day Jesus died on the cross. As sad as it is, though, it’s such an important part of the Gospel story. There is no, “He is risen,” without their first being “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”

When you’re ready, watch the lesson video with your kids. It’s fun for the whole family and there is an opportunity to pause and discuss.  Afterwards, there are two great worship videos from Yancy to choose from: one is for older kids and one is for younger kids.


Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Death on the Cross (Luke 23:32-46)

Big Idea: God’s grace is big enough, so we can go to Him no matter who we are or what we’ve done.

Memory Verse: “God’s grace has now appeared. By his grace, God offers to save all people.”  Titus 2:11 (NIrV)


After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

Lastly, I want to echo the words of Paul in Philippians 1:3, “Every time I think of you, I thank God for you.” I’m so proud to partner with you so the light of Jesus may shine in the lives of your children.

In Him, Carol Patterson-LeClerc

Hey Kids!

We hear good things about your ‘Thankfulness Journals.’  Some people have used books they have, others have stapled pages together to make their book.  Your whole family can take part in adding in their ideas. It is a great way to keep us focused on all God’s blessings in our lives.  Under the ‘day’ buttons below, we’ve included an idea for each day of the week, to keep you going on it, or get you started.  It’s never too late!


Bring your journal in on the first Sunday we are all back together.  You will be given a ticket for each day of thankfulness in your journal and we’ll put them all in to have a draw for a super cool prize!

Keep writing:)
