Preschool Curriculum: Easter

We will begin a new series in our preschool curriculum this weekend, that will run through April 24th. We will be reading through the Easter story to learn that God is Holy, and we should repent. Our memory verse for this study is Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ our Lord."

Check out an excerpt from the leader preparation for the first lesson of this series:
"It’s the greatest story ever told… the entire Bible points to this moment… when Christ would come and restore the relationship between God and His people.  And so often we forget that this is what it’s all about! Jesus was born to die, to take on our sin and shame, so that we could be reconciled back to our Heavenly  Father.  It’s the best news of our life, and yet we go about our day with little thought of this extraordinary act...Easter gives us a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with life and death – the death that we were destined for because of our sin and the eternal life that God offers through the sacrifice of His Son.  We have been given a chance to acknowledge the great sinfulness of our hearts while also celebrating the grace and mercy offered to us through Christ..."
How do you approach this time of year? Do you daily meditate on the sacrifice Jesus made to save you from your sin, and worship Him for it? Or do you struggle to make room in your hectic schedule to remember the price Jesus paid so you can be restored to your Heavenly Father? We have a holy God, who gave up His only Son to pay the penalty we deserved, and provide a way for us to be redeemed and have eternal life. We can respond in repentance and worship to the One who is worthy of all our praise.
