Holy Week Neighbourhood Hide & Seek

Holy Week is seven days in the Christian church year for Christians to remember the hard and sad parts of Jesus’ story. Sometimes it’s hard to hear sad stories. This story happened whether we listen or not. People who didn’t like Jesus arrested him and they wouldn’t let him go. Later they nailed him to a cross to kill him. Jesus died. It was very sad. But three days later, God did an amazing thing. God made Jesus alive again. That is the wonderful mystery of Easter. We try to remember the hard and sad times and the amazing and wonderful times. With your family, go for a walk around where you live. Can you find these symbols of the Holy Week story? – Download here.

Marking One Year Online!
It’s been almost a year since we’ve been together, seen our friends, shared hugs, and experienced the joy of community. A year since COVID-19 changed the world as we knew it. We brought our kids home from school and tried to figure out what Zoom worship looked like (it will only be for a few weeks, right?).
Illustrated Ministry has come up with some prayers to help communities mark this year of COVID-19, and they created a set of three colouring pages that go along with these prayers. This is a free resource, so please feel free to share it widely. Download here.
