This is my Vacation Bible School crew for 2011:
We are in the middle of a program called Jump: Put Faith In Motion.
This morning, my group and I were discussing today’s bottom line: Jesus ROSE again so that you would know He is GOD.
I briefly told about the crucifixion on Good Friday followed by the resurrection on that first Easter Sunday.
The face of one of the little boys in the group grew bright as he had sudden flash of insight: “So that’s why we have church on Sunday! So every week is a celebration of the resurrection!”
How’s that for downloading 2000 years of church history — and understanding one of the early church’s most fundamental decisions — in a twenty minute Vacation Bible School lesson?
