5 Children’s Church Lessons for Parents to Use at Home This Easter Season

April 11: Doubting Thomas Believes

  • Theme: Jesus has risen from the dead.
  • Scripture: John 20:19-31
  • Memory Verse: “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:29 (NIV)

Kids will hear some wild stories about almost unbelievable things that have happened. Like a weenie over 3,000 feet long!? They will also hear about how Thomas would not believe that Jesus was alive until he saw it for himself. They’ll learn that seeing isn’t always believing in a fun way.

April 18: The Road to Emmaus

  • Theme: Jesus reveals himself to His followers.
  • Scripture: Luke 24:13-35
  • Memory Verse: “When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.” Luke 24:30-31 (NIV)

You will blindfold your kids and have them guess who is talking. Your kids will see that it’s not always easy to know. Your kids will learn that two disciples did not recognize Jesus when they met Him on the road to Emmaus. And your kids will learn that Jesus wants us to know Him.
