Chapel of the Cross Faith & Family

Family Bible time for April 4-April 10

Welcome to Chapel's Faith & Family!

This interactive Bible Time is a little different this week. Because this is Holy Week, there are a number of things for your family to watch, read, and do throughout the week to help you think about all that Jesus our Savior did for us. Do a little something each day as you remember and thank Jesus for His great love and sacrifice for you.

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank You for sending Your only Son, Jesus, into this world to be our Savior. Help us this week to set aside time to remember how Jesus suffered and died to pay for our sins. Help us to see just how much You love us. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Closing Prayer

Dear Jesus, thank You for laying down Your life for us so that we can one day live with You in heaven. Help us to love others as You have loved us. We praise You, because You are our Savior, God, and King! In Your name we pray. Amen.
