There are a lot of great things happening for children at Bethlehem as we approach Palm Sunday and Holy Week. In Pioneer Club tonight the children will have the option of coloring Easter coloring pages, watching a Veggie tales take on Easter, or building their own empty tomb. We’ll also talk about what Easter is all about since we will not be together next Wednesday during Holy Week.
On Sunday there will be a palm processional at the beginning of worship where the children can wave palm branches or the Palm Sunday branches they made in Pioneer Club last week. Both of the children’s choirs will be singing as well. Since the passion reading takes the place of the sermon this week there will be no children’s church.
On Easter Sunday we’ll have our famous Easter Egg hunt at around 10:30am, weather permitting the eggs will be hidden on the child care center’s playground. We’ll have a brief telling of the Easter story upstairs in the youth room, and then the children can “cash in” the empty egg shells they find for a prize bag full of Easter goodies. On a personal note, my daughter Molly will be baptized during the 11am service so Easter will be even more special than normal for me.
Be sure to check out the great programming we have lined up for your children this week and next as we celebrate our savior’s journey to the cross and glorious resurrection.
