Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As you know, due to the Coronavirus Covid-19 it is currently advised that public worship should be postponed. So, as you gather together in your homes as a family this Easter, please feel free to use these resources with your children to guide your Worship @ Home.
from St John’s Worship Team.
Kids @ Home – Holy Week
Share a special Passover Meal together as a family.
A devotion and instructions re food preparation are on the Worship @ Home Maundy Thursday page!! https://www.stjohnsgeelong.org.au/worship-home/worship-home-maundy-thursday-passover-meal/
After some worship time, snuggle up on the couch with your family and watch “Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe”.
This is screening on Disney Plus (7 day free trial available if needed).
If you have the book on the shelf, you could also read it aloud to each other over the weekend.
Get up really early at 6am (dawn) and have a breakfast picnic outside (e.g. hot cross buns with a thermos of Milo). If you are really keen, you might like to set up the tent and sleep in the backyard on Saturday night.
Look to the East and watch the sun rise. Read the story of Easter Sunday from your favourite family bible.
You might like to use the Worship @ Home Dawn Service Devotion.
Have some great worship time and then hunt (and eat) some Easter Eggs with your family.
A Holy Week activity:
Find a bare branch and place it in a pot. Each day of Holy Week, attach a different symbol to the branch and read the associated Scripture passage.
