LESSON TWO - 05/04/2020
Hi Parents and carers,
We have changed a few things on the Kidzone program to continue giving our awesome Church One kids online activities during the school holidays. Therefore, today’s activity is on Palm Sunday.
Theme: iWitness News
What you need to know:
Pray with your children about having the opportunity to tell others about Jesus and the great love He has for us. Maybe they can invite someone to tune into our church service at home with their families. Encourage children to tell others about how they are still attending church on Sunday’s by watching it through YouTube and how church has kids activities online that their friends can download too. Pray that the Good News of Easter will be received by all who listen.
Aim: News travels fast in our time, thanks to Wi-Fi and social media, but in Jesus’ time it travelled by word of mouth. Even so, a huge crowd went out to welcome Jesus into Jerusalem. On Palm Sunday we remember that Jesus came to Earth and to Jerusalem to die for our sins.
Memory verse: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)
Scripture to read:
Luke 19:28-40 The Triumphal Entry
VIDEO FOR TODAY'S LESSON:
Activity: Have the children complete the worksheet below. Please feel free to add any other Palm Sunday craft activity you find on the internet. There are so many available to choose from.
If you would like to help children remember the Memory Verse, you can print the little poster below and place it somewhere in your home e.g the fridge
Make this week’s lesson real: Ask your child/ren how they think the news of Jesus’ arrival spread so quickly through Jerusalem without TV news or the Internet.
Here are some great discussion starters:
What do we celebrate on Palm Sunday?
Why did Jesus travel to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday?
Do you have a friend you want to talk to about Jesus?
Thank you for your support and may God bless you all!
