Here comes Jesus!

SUNDAY IS COMING
The children will join you for worship this week and you can sign them in to kids at the coffee break. They will have the choice of watching a video in the music room or of colouring and building in room 106. At the end of the morning sign out will happen from room 106 for the ORANGE Group and from the Music Room for the BLUE Group.

TO READ TOGETHER
Mark 11:1-11
This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday and marks the beginning of the week that leads us up to Easter Sunday. There is a lot that happens in the that week and I’ll give you those parts to read with your children then, for now, let’s read the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem as King, riding not on a warhorse but on a donkey.

TO LEARN TOGETHER
Praise God! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord. Mark 11:9b

TO DO TOGETHER
Go online and learn how to praise someone in sign language. Then use that sign with the sign for Jesus to say ‘Praise Jesus.’

SO I’M WONDERING…
QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR KIDS (AND YOURSELF)
Jesus was greeted like a king when He entered Jerusalem. Have you ever been greeted warmly at a new place? Where was it? How did you feel?
Do you like surprise endings? Happy endings? Endings where things are left unfinished, like there’s going to be another book or movie? Jesus’ story has a little bit of all of those things.

TO PRAY TOGETHER
Jesus, You started out a little baby. And You grew up just like us. Did You know what You would be when You grew up? Could You have known You were destined to be the Saviour of the world? The cheering crowds were with You on Your long walk to the cross. But they did not stay. Stay with us now as we remember this week: blessed is the one who comes! Amen.

KEEP YOUR EARS OPEN
When you hear someone say “Hello” or welcome a friend, remember what the crowds said when Jesus entered Jerusalem.

LOOKING AHEAD
EASTER SUNDAY (APRIL 1) everyone in the meeting together with the grown ups so we can celebrate this great day together. NO KIDS GROUPS
