Focus on the Easter Sunday Gospel.
Use this unit study to help teach children about Easter and that God keeps His promises and so should we. This lesson is based on the account of the Resurrection of the Lord in John 20:1-9.
In this week’s Gospel, we witness the Resurrection of Christ. We are reminded of the beautiful promise of salvation made by the Lord, and the loving and sacrificial way that it was fulfilled. From the very beginning, God has called us to Himself with many covenants, and He has always kept His Word. Following His example, we should strive to follow through on the promises we make to others. The festivities of Easter not only use the egg as the symbol of new life, but also remind us of God’s love for us.
