Ahhhh. I can breathe a little easier now, our children's Easter program went well this morning. Actually the whole morning went well, with the exception of the snow which forced us to move our egg hunt indoors.
The children explored the question, "What is Easter all about?" No it's not about chocolate Cadbury eggs, or rabbits, or Easter hats and dresses/ It's not going off on trips or spending time at home with your family. It's not even about ham dinners...
Easter is about the death and resurrection of Jesus - a time when Mercy Came Running to meet us all, I'm so proud of our children's' group. they memorized their lines and did their parts so well.
After their song, you could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in the room so strongly,m Pastor had to give an altar call right then.
We had 22 children under age 12 , a record for our small church since we've been here. Today, the little children led the church in the Gospel Message and what a blessing! Jesus was right when he said we must become as little children in order to see the kingdom of heaven - innocent, enthusiastic and in love with Him!
