Dear Parents -
Wednesday Night Programs resume April 11th!
If you have children ages 3 years through 4th grade, please join us this Wednesday from 6:15-8pm. Our preschoolers continue their study of the life of Jesus, and our elementary kids will begin a new unit talking about how God’s love changes us.
Here’s what we’ll be talking about on Sunday, April 15th—
Elementary—Jesus is Alive
John 20 (Jesus Appears to His Disciples)
We are continuing to talk about Jesus’ resurrection—specifically what happened after He came back to life. The Bible records three different times that Jesus appeared to His disciples after the resurrection. He showed proof to them that He had truly died (the nail holes in his hands and where He was pierced in His side), and that He was a real person and not a ghost (they touched His hands and He ate Luke 24:39, 43).
Something like this had never happened before! Can you imagine how the disciples must have felt? They had seen Jesus raise others from the dead, but Jesus raised Himself. He conquered death! He crushed the serpent just like He promised in Genesis 3:15! Wow!
Because Jesus lives, we can live too! Death and separation from God isn’t the end for everyone who trusts Jesus. We will live with Him forever! What a glorious truth that we can celebrate every day of the year!

April Bible Memory Verse: Galatians 2:20
Preschool—Jesus is the Good News
Luke 3:1-20; Mark 1:1-8; Matthew 3:1-11 (John the Baptist)
This past week we talked about the miraculous birth of John. This week we meet John again, as a man, doing the work that God had created and called him to do—preparing the way for Jesus!
John told people to repent of their sin—tell God they were sorry for the bad things they had done—and stop doing them. Those who did, were baptized to show others how their hearts had been changed. John was helping the people prepare their hearts for Jesus, their Rescuer and Messiah.
