April Sunday School Theme:
We Celebrate Resurrection
Bible Story: Mark 11:7-10
They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes upon it, and he sat on it. Many people spread out their clothes on the road while others spread branches cut from the fields. Those in front of him and those following were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessings on the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest!”
Bible Story Focus: Jesus and His disciples make their entrance into Jerusalem. His disciples went ahead of the rest and brought a donkey for Jesus to ride. Jesus is greeted by crowds waving palm branches and exclaiming, “Hosanna to the son of David!”
How can your family celebrate Palm Sunday together?
Family Activity: Palms and Races
Supplies: Green paper, pencil, scissors, glue, popsicle sticks.
Have each person in your family trace their hand four or five times on the green paper (or color white paper with a green crayon). Using the scissors, cut out the hands. Apply glue to the sticks and arrange the hands (thumbs together) on either side of the stick so they resemble a palm leaf.
Once the leaves are finished, set up a start and finish line and divide into teams. Since the palms were laid so Jesus’s feet would not touch the ground, lay the palms, from your team, end to end and try to be the first one across without actually touching the ground. Once you step on a palm, lay another in front. Then, once you step on that one, reach back for the other and, again, place it in front. Keep this going all the way across the finish line!
