Better late than never! Here is April’s Newsletter:
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Passion Week, in which we we observe, worship and celebrate the events that lead up to Christs death on the cross for our sins and defeated death by His Resurrection.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life. Romans 6:23
This past MOPS meeting, we celebrated Easter by reviewing the events that unfolded over Passion Week and we encourage you to follow through these Passion Week passages that tell the story of the events leading to Christs death on the cross and his resurrection.
Helping our children understand that there is SO much more to Easter than the Easter Bunny is an important role we as parents have. Focus on the Family has a lot of tools that we can use to assist us in this. For smaller children, who think so literally, and are visual, making Resurrection Rolls or Resurrection cookies is a great activity to illustrate Christs death and resurrection
