GOOD STORY: A 2-WEEK SERIES ON EASTER
For some of us, the Easter story is a little unclear. (It has something to do with Jesus dyeing Easter eggs with a rabbit, right?) For others, we’ve heard the Easter story, seen the Easter plays, and attended Easter services so many times that it has almost become white noise. In this Easter series, you’ll challenge students’ assumptions and attitudes about the Easter story as you help them see that the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection is more than just a story —it’s true! And it’s good news for the entire world.
Have you ever wondered how to respond if your teenager starts expressing doubts or asking tough questions about their faith? (Like if Jesus actually rose from the dead, perhaps?) We love this clip from Nikomas Perez (a youth pastor) about how the development of a teenager’s brain influences their faith and their doubts.
Maybe your teenager thinks they’re too cool to celebrate Easter with you these days. If that’s true, here’s a tip from your favorite youth ministry. Challenge them to a game of Easter Egg Roulette.
We’re wondering . . . How does your family celebrate Easter? Hit Reply to this email and let us know!
