Easter – Dig It Up - Early Childhood 5 Week Curriculum
This series is meant to teach the kids to prepare, celebrate, and remember Jesus this Easter.
Our hope is that the kids will walk away knowing that they can get ready for Easter, celebrate Jesus as their good King, believe because Jesus is alive, trust Jesus when they’re not sure, and think about Jesus every day.
For this series, the Skuppets are grabbing their hats and shovels to join Joey on his archaeologic dig. They’ll search for ancient artifacts and uncover pieces of the Easter story as Joey reminds the kids that they can get ready for Easter, celebrate Easter, and remember what Jesus did on Easter.
