Holy Week Resources for Families

 

 

 

 

Holy Week - Palm Sunday through Resurrection Sunday - is when we take time to remember Jesus' last week before He gave His life on the cross. This time is a mixture of sadness and celebration, and it is important that children see all the facets of these holy days. How do you take time during this week to look at Jesus' journey to the cross? How do you explain these sad events to young children?

Explore these great ideas and resources to open up conversations that point your family and friends to the importance of Holy Week and the amazing gift of Jesus' life for us.

TRUTHS FOR CHILDREN

Preschool - Jesus obeyed God's plan. He went to the city of Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. That week, He died and was buried in a tomb. He did not stay dead. On the third day, He rose again because this is what He said would happen. He did this for us to be able to have life with God in heaven someday.

Elementary - Jesus, the only perfect human, took our sin when He died on the cross. He knew this was going to happen and the reason He gave His life is that He loves us. He did not stay dead. He rose again on the third day, just as He said, and talked and walked with His followers for 40 days. He then ascended to heaven to live with God and prepare a place for those who believe. As we accept Jesus' death as punishment for our sins and ask Him to be our Savior, He gives us eternal life.
