Family Worship


The focus of this family time is to use five easy steps to teach your family that God’s Son, Jesus, is arrested, put on trial, and crucified. But after three days, He comes back to life! Jesus forgives our sins, saves us, and gives us new life.


Jesus forgives our sins, saves us, and gives us new life. —from 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.


  • SUPPLIES: disposable cups (10), plastic eggs, basket, disposable bowls (optional, 10)      
  • Fill a basket with empty plastic eggs. Gather kids together in front of the cups in a cross shape. Today is a special day, and we’re talking about something very important. These eggs are empty! This is a clue for what we’re talking about. Does anyone have any ideas? Allow kids to answer. Yes! We are learning about when Jesus rose from the tomb! Have kids stand close to the bottom of the cross and toss eggs into the cups. Great job getting the eggs in the cups! Part of the story we’re going to explore today has to do with a cross and how Jesus is alive. We can celebrate that Jesus is risen! 




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



  • Who wanted Jesus to die? (religious leaders, the crowd, and Roman soldiers) 
  • What did Jesus say when He was accused of bad things while He was on trial? (nothing; He didn’t defend Himself) 
  • Who told the women that Jesus was alive? (the angel) 
  • How do you think the women felt when they saw Jesus alive after He was crucified? 
  • What would you have said to Jesus if you had seen Him on that day? 
  • Why did Jesus die on the cross? 
  • Who can you tell about the good news that Jesus is alive?

God sent Jesus to earth to save us. We can praise Him as our King today. Let’s talk to God now in prayer and thank Him for Jesus! 

Mission Moment

Katie Luther


All moms are really special, aren't they? What's special about your mom? Her cooking? Her caring? Her cuddles?

Katie Luther never knew her mom - she died When Katie was a little girl. Katie thought she would never be a mom either. Katie was a nun.

À nun is someone who has said she will never marry or have children and who lives in a big house with other nuns. When Katie lived, people thought you could only be Jesus' special friend if you didn't get married or have children.

Then Katie found out from the Bible that she could be Jesus' special friend whether she was a nun or not, whether she was married or not, and whether she had children or not. So Katie got married to Martin Luther. He was a very busy and important man. She looked after him when he was well, when he was ill, when he was happy and When he was grumpy. They had six children. She looked after them when they were well, happy and grumpy. Lots of people lived with them, stayed with them and visited them. She looked after all of them too. She cooked, cleaned and cared for them all. She even ran her own farm and made her own beer!

Kate showed her family and friends that she loved her friend Jesus by loving them too.

STEP 5. Pray!

God, thank You for forgiving us when we sin and for sending Your Son, Jesus, to die on a cross to take the punishment for us so we can spend forever with You in heaven! We celebrate You and praise You. In Jesus’ name, Amen. 
Blessing: May you live with joy knowing that Jesus is alive and with us! He died for you and rose again because He loves you!
