Did you know that the largest Easter egg in the world lives in Vegreville, Canada? Did you know that the most popular Easter candy in the world are Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Eggs? There’s a ton of fun trivia around the theme of Easter, but the best questions to ask kids are about Jesus. Because Easter isn't really about what you know, but who you know. Did you know we can love Jesus more than anything? Did you know Jesus is king over everything? Did you know Jesus is alive? Did you know we can trust Jesus? This month as we celebrate Easter, we will invite kids to go beyond the facts and win the grand prize of knowing Jesus for themselves!
When it comes to knowing Jesus, we must be intentional in spending time with Him through Scripture, prayer, and worship. We can model this for our children by living it out in our own lives first. When we have genuine faith and aim to honor God, we are inspiring our kids to know Jesus more. We can also teach our children how to spend time with God through family devotions. By obeying and seeking God as a family, you are teaching your children how to obey and seek Him individually as well. Here are some specific ways that you can encourage spending time with God during the month of April:
Read and practice the memory verse for this month . Talk about the meaning of this verse, why it is important, and how we can apply it. 2 Peter 3:18a, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
Join our Community Kids families by participating in our Easter Devotional Guide that will lead us to remember, reflect, and receive the gift of life through the work of Jesus on the cross. This devotional will be available to take home and is designed to lead your family to read and discuss Scripture, pray together, and engage in meaningful activities as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Be sure to pick up one for your family this Easter season.
