Resurection Celebration

We added something new this year to our celebration of Easter with the boys, and I think it will become a yearly tradition from now on. We made Resurrection cookies. The boys had a blast, and it was a wonderful opportunity to teach them again many details about Christ’s death and resurrection. With each ingredient that you add, you read Scripture and then have a corresponding action to represent the events in Scripture. You can find the recipe and instructions here.

Sunday Morning:


We had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday with our boys and with our church family. We had a beautiful morning service followed by lunch and afternoon service. It was a blessed day as we remembered that we have a risen Saviour!
