Happy Easter?!

by Nathan on April 5, 2012

“Teach a child in the way they should go and when they are older they will not depart from it” – Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)

“Give me a child for the first four years of it’s life, and the seed I have planted will never be uprooted” – Lenin

No doubt on this Easter weekend this year there will be many children’s ministries who will be passionately teaching about the atonement and the resurrection; such great formative themes and integral thoughts which are the foundation of our faith. I don’t think that there are many children around our churches who won’t be looking forward to the bounty Easter brings. They will be chowing down on Hot-Cross Buns and having egg hunts; they will be celebrating this most important occasion of Christ’s atoning death and His defeat of death in their own ways, with their own traditions – often whether they believe Christ is the savior of the world or not. Of course many of our church halls will be burgeoning with those who only turn up to church once or twice a year; but it is a golden opportunity where more people are open to hearing and accepting the Gospel Story. Over this coming weekend we, as children’s ministers, have the opportunity to share with children the Gospel message and the change Jesus made in the world and for us personally in our lives.
