This week's Scripture: Mark 14:32-42
In this section of the Gospel of Mark, Jesus goes to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray before he is arrested. His disciples sleep while he prays and worries. It can be hard for kids to understand parts of the Easter story and the week that precedes it. Part of our Sunday school team, Emily and Justin (and their trusty assistant), explain what Holy Week is in this lesson!
Supplemental Scripture: Zechariah 9:9b
This video is a virtual Sunday school devotional about Jesus entering Jerusalem. This story is why we call today Palm Sunday. Feel free to pause the video to discuss the questions with your children.
If you want to wave your own palm, here's one from Illustrated Ministry for you to color and cut out! There are some additional pages for older children as well.
How many letters or pictures have you sent out so far? Some of our appreciation has been appreciated on social media, as one company shared the letter they received on their Facebook account. It was exciting to see the shout out to a kiddo from Polk City UMC on their page and touching to know that these little kind gestures really do make a difference. Keep sending those letters and don't forget how much it means to be appreciated and thanked!
