The LORD is risen - He is risen indeed! Alleluia!


Opening Prayer

When I go outside, I stop and stare

Your wondrous creation is everywhere.

In each blade of grass, each creature, plant, and flower

The miracle of life shows Your almighty power

This Week's Memory Verse - John 3:16

"For God SO loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

I always learn scripture better when I can put music to it. If that sounds like you, too, you can use this music video to help you remember this all-important verse about God's love and His son's sacrifice for us!

Supporting Verses for our Lives

  • Matthew 5:38-41 “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic,let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you."

Casting Crowns - If We Are The Body (Official Lyric Video)


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), and because He is steadfast, who we are in Him remains the same regardless of circumstances. These statements remind us whose we are and who we are Because of who Jesus is.

Speak these statements together as a family.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed by Thy name

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory

Forever and ever
