Celebrating the Cross and the Empty Tomb

I am so thankful for this evening that I spent with two sweet families teaching our children about Christ, His life on earth, and his death and resurrection.  If you didn't read the post I wrote about all we were doing this evening, you can check it out HERE.  Just wanted to share the pics of the fun and fellowship we had.  I know that the kids didn't grasp everything we talked about, but the seeds were planted and I feel confident God will bless our efforts. Hope you enjoy a glimpse of the fun we had this evening!!!

All of us learning about one of Jesus' miracles, the feeding of the 5,000.

We made a collage of all the things that God gives us.  We talked about how we can share those with others and all brought food we could donate to our church's food pantry.

Then we learned about Jesus washing the disciples feet.  He told us that he set the example that we are to follow, being a servant to all people.  This was the craft to help us remember that.  We also donated supplies to Sole Hope for their jigger removal clinics.

Then we learned what Christ did for us when he went to the cross and was raised from the dead.  We each made a painting to remind us what He's done for us.  This is the one that Sophie and Ethan did.

This was really fun!  I am hoping we are able to do this, or something like it, next year.  And I look forward to how God will mold and shape it as it gets deeper as the children get older!
