Family Worship


he focus of this family time is to use five easy steps to teach your family that Jesus rides a donkey into Jerusalem as people praise Him by shouting, “Hosanna!” Jesus doesn’t look like a normal king, but He saves those who call to Him. He saves them from the powers of sin and death.


He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit. Titus 3:5

Learn the Memory Verse together and say it throughout the week to help your family remember and apply what they have learned.


You’ll need: cup, vinegar (½ cup), baking soda (1 tbsp), tray      

Count to three with the kids and on the count of three, place a tablespoon of baking soda into the cup with vinegar. This should create a reaction that bubbles over outside the cup. Encourage kids to “erupt with praise” as the cup overflows.



Sing and have fun while worshiping then pray. Take a moment here to thank God for your family and your time together!!

Use these questions and points to have a conversation with your children about the Bible story.


  • Why did Mary and Martha send a message to Jesus? 
  • When Jesus arrived to see Lazarus, what had happened to Lazarus? 
  • When Jesus came to Lazarus’ tomb, what did Jesus do? 
  • Lazarus was one of Jesus’ best friends. Who are some of your closest friends, and why? 
  • How does it make you feel to know that Jesus has power over death? 
  • If Jesus has power over death, what other things can He help you with? 

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, everyone thought He would be a king on earth, so they asked Him to save them! And that’s exactly what Jesus was going to do, only in a way they didn’t expect. He was going to save them from their sins! He would prove that He is King forever. Let’s take some time to pray and thank Jesus for being our good King. 

Mission Moment

Eric Liddell


Are you a fast runner? God makes some people who can run fast and some people who can't. Sometimes, like on sports day at school, it can seem that running fast is the most important thing in the world.

It isn't really - it is much more important to be Jesus’ friend and live for him.

Eric Liddell was a very, very fast runner. He was the fastest runner in the world and won a gold medal at the Olympic Games. He loved running, but he loved his friend Jesus even more! Because Eric was a good runner people wanted to listen to what he said. Eric told them about Jesus.

Eric was a famous man, but he went to China - a country a long way away - where nobody had even heard of him. He wanted to tell the people there about Jesus too. It was a very dangerous place to be.

There was fighting and Eric was put in prison. It was horrid, but Eric how had more people to tell about Jesus. Eric was cold and hungry and soon he became very ll, but he always knew that Jesus was looking after him.

When Eric died people said how great he was because he could run fast. Eric knew that it was much greater to be Jesus' friend and tell people all about him.

STEP 5. Pray!

Invite kids to think of ways King Jesus leads them. Then encourage kids to think through some areas of their lives where they need Jesus to be King. Maybe they need to let Him lead them with friends at school or with parents or siblings. Invite the kids to offer prayer requests, and then take some time to pray for King Jesus’ leadership in their lives.
