A special event for kids to celebrate how Jesus died and rose for us.
Saint Peter Lutheran Church is planning our 6th annual “Easter for Kids” to help children in our community celebrate the great Easter message of how Jesus died and rose to save us.
Easter for Kids will be held this Saturday, April 13, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at our church. It’s completely free, and all children ages 3-12 are invited. The kids will learn how Jesus died and rose to save them, sing Easter songs, and do Easter projects and crafts, all while you take the morning off. Our Easter for Kids will conclude with a free lunch for everyone – parents and kids – at 11:30 a.m.
We would love to have your children join us! Register your kids online today by clicking HERE. It will only take a minute to sign them up. Please pass this information on to your friends and neighbors too!
Wednesday begins the season of Lent; a special time for personal reflection,
repentance, prayer and the opportunity to participate in additional worship
services. Christians are encouraged to prepare themselves for the celebration
of the Lord’s resurrection.
What is the
significance of ashes?
purpose is to have a visual reminder that the wages of sin is death (Romans
6:23), and death means our bodies return to dust from which Adam was made
(Genesis 3:19). As ashes are biblical pictures of repentance (Job 42:6;
Matthew 11:21), the use of ashes eventually became associated with Lent, a
penitential season of the church year. As a church custom, the imposition of ashes (as it is called) is
an adiaphoron. God has not commanded it nor forbidden it. In Christian freedom,
we may utilize the practice or forego it. During our Ash Wednesday service, we
will be incorporating the Rite of Ashes at the end of our service; not on the
forehead, but each worshiper will draw a cross with ashes on a sackcloth
banner, which will hang in the sanctuary until Good Friday to remind us of our
need for and commitment to repentance.
