Hello, kids of Trinity Church. I hope you are doing well and are enjoying spring. This is an exciting time of year. Flowers are blooming, the weather is warmer and there’s more of a chance to play outside.
There’s another, even more important event that happens this month. Easter! That’s right. It’s the day we celebrate when Jesus came back. This is what happened: Jesus died and his friends were really sad; but then on the third day after he died, he came back from the dead! He did this to let us know that Jesus is the Son of God, God loves us so much, and that there is life with God after death.
Why do we celebrate Easter with the Easter Bunny, Easter eggs and tons of chocolate candy? There are lots of different stories about how the Bunny and the eggs represent new life. (Personally, I think people just like eating chocolate bunnies and jelly beans!)
Would you like to be a part of Trinity’s Easter Egg Hunt? We’d love to see you there. We’ll gather on the big lawn next to the Fellowship Building on Palm Sunday, April 14, after the 10:30 service is over. There is a special section for younger kids and another for bigger kids. It’s always so much fun. Don’t forget your Easter basket!
Hunting for eggs and eating candy is awesome, but it’s not the best part about Easter. The very best part of Easter is knowing how much God loves us.
Have a happy Easter and remember my motto: Paws for Jesus!
