Resurrection Sunday Children’s Activities
By Pastors   April 5th, 2018

We continued our Passover Celebration on Sunday at Rayen Resort. The children gathered at a “door” at the entrance to the property, and each of them got to paint the doorposts with hyssop and blood (red food dye). Ben Bradley explained how the angel of death passed over the homes of the Israelites because they were covered by the blood of the Passover lamb. In the same way, the sacrifice of Jesus Christ covers and purifies our hearts, and makes it possible for us to enter the door into the presence of the Father.

After painting the doorposts, each child passed through the door, and Margo Walkoe placed a big gold heart on them, representing the change of nature they experience by coming to the Lord. Inside, the children used a “Gifts of the Spirit” bag to gather gifts and prizes hidden in the grass and bushes. Each child found a box labeled with a gift of the Spirit, and “Egyptians” gave them gifts of jewelry and pretty trinkets.

Next came the petting zoo! The children got to interact and play with alpacas, goats, chickens, pigs, and baby ducks, and had so much fun! What a joyful way to celebrate our Lord’s resurrection!
