April 5—Palm Sunday

“Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” (Zechariah 9:9, NIV)

Scripture Reading & Prayer: On Palm Sunday, we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem just a few days before His sacrifice and resurrection. Read Zechariah 9:9 and John 12:12-16, then say a prayer of praise and adoration for our Savior and King!

Family Activity: After you read the Scripture passages above and pray together, print and color these palm leaves and have a parade as if Jesus were coming down your street!

April 6—The Cursed Fig Tree & Jesus Clears the Temple

"And Jesus, answering, saith unto them, ‘Have faith in God.’’’ (Mark 11:22, KJV)

Scripture Reading & Prayer: As we continue our journey through Holy Week, read Mark 11:12–25 and prayerfully consider what lies and distractions you can clear away to make more room for faith. Ask the Spirit to expose the clutter in your heart and create space for His love and truth.

Family Activity: Look up a picture of a fig tree and have your kids draw two versions of it—one that’s green and growing figs, and one that’s brown and shriveled. Compare the two pictures and talk about how our hearts wilt when we don’t have deep roots of faith in Christ.

April 7—Mount of Olives (Olivet Discourse)

”...stand up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.’’(Luke 21:28)

Scripture Reading & Prayer: Read Luke 21:5–38, a section often referred to as the Olivet Discourse. Ask the Spirit of God to sharpen your mind to be more attuned to His work and will for your life, and pray that He would keep your attention focused on His promise to return.

Family Activity: Download and print this lantern coloring page to remind your little ones to always be watching for our Savior’s return! Talk with your kids about how lanterns help us see clearly in the darkness and how Christ and God’s Word are our lights in this world.

April 8—Preparing for Passover

"Put your trust in the light while there is still time; then you will become children of the light . . .” (John 12:36)

Scripture Reading & Prayer: Read John 12:20–36, where Jesus predicts His sacrificial death for our sins and His victorious resurrection. Pause and consider the idea of Jesus as our Light and our Passover Lamb, who died to save us and rose to give us an eternal hope. Pray and journal about your gratitude for Jesus’ saving love.

Family Activity: Make a thankfulness tree to remind your family to thank God for all He has given you! Download the activity sheet for instructions and a Scripture passage to read together.

April 9—Last Supper

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34, NLT)

Scripture Reading & Prayer: Read the story of Jesus washing His disciples’ feet at the Last Supper in John 13:1–17 and His command in John 13:34–35. Close your eyes and picture the scene, considering how remarkable it is for the Savior and King of the world to take on the role of a servant. In prayer, thank the Lord for His gift of love through Jesus, and ask Him to give you a humble heart of love for Him and others.

Family Activity: Show your kids what it means to love others by playing Kindness Bingo! Download the bingo sheet below for ideas of how to put others first, and check them off together.

April 10—Good Friday: Trial, Crucifixion, Death & Burial

Scripture Reading & Prayer: Read John 19:1–30 and spend some time in quiet reflection. Confess your sins to God in prayer and thank Him for saving you through Jesus’ sacrifice. In the evening at 7, join our church family online to worship in song and observe the Lord’s Table using anything you have available, such as crackers and juice.

Family Activity: Tonight at 7, watch our Good Friday service with your family and take Communion together, using crackers and juice or any similar items you have on hand. Before the service starts, you can also gather candles or flashlights and slowly extinguish the lights one by one until the house is dark at the end of the service. After you take Communion together, spend a few minutes in quiet reflection or discussion.

Watch Good Friday Service at 7 p.m.

April 11—The Quiet Tomb

Scripture Reading & Prayer: Read 1 Peter 1:3–9 & 13–21 and rejoice in the living hope you have in Christ, paid for by His precious blood. Thank the Lord in prayer for securing your salvation, and ask Him to help you stand firm in His love and the truth of the Gospel.

Family Activity: Use our cross light-resist activity to show your kids how Jesus’ sacrifice has covered and protected us with salvation. Instructions and a family Scripture reading are included on the activity sheet.

April 12—Resurrection Sunday

Easter Reflection: The stone was rolled away, shining light into an empty tomb. That symbol of death was forevermore undone for those who trusted in Christ’s sacrifice. The promise paid, the gates unlocked, the path made clear. Trust in Him today.

Consider & Share: What has been rolled away in your life? What stone has been moved that only God could have accomplished? Thank God in prayer for His work in your life, and share your story with someone this week!

Family Activity: For a fun baking activity, there are many online recipes for Empty Tomb Crescent Rolls like the one attached here. Talk about how Jesus’ tomb was empty—meaning He is alive today! Celebrate this day together with your favorite traditions, and maybe even create some new ones!

Watch Resurrection Sunday Service at 10:45 a.m.
