Apr. 7 & 8: Jesus Is Alive

This Weekend in MC Park, in Sunday School and Elementary Worship, your child will learn the story of Jesus’ Resurrection.

Jesus Is Alive!

You can review the story in
Mark 16:1-8. A great memory verse for your family this week is John 11:25 (adapted) – “People who believe in Jesus will live forever”

Questions for review with your child:

1.    Why do you think Jesus didn’t stay in the grave?
2.    What does this mean for people who believe in Jesus?
3.    What do you think the women in the Bible thought when they saw the empty tomb?
4.    What things can remind us that Jesus is alive?
5.    What do you think it was like for the people who realized Jesus was alive on that first Easter?
6.    How can you tell that Jesus is alive?
7.    How can you show Jesus that you’re thankful he’s alive?
8.    What might change in your life if you believe that Jesus is alive?
9.    How can showing honor and love to Jesus let others know you believe Jesus is alive?
10. How can you celebrate Jesus being alive when the sun rises tomorrow morning?
