Easter Saturday for children and families
Read: Matthew 27: 57-61
Holy Week in a Box:
On the Saturday, everything was so still you could almost hear the earth breathe. There was nothing that could be done. Holy Saturday is a waiting day. Place a tea-light by your box as a way of showing that you are waiting.
What might it have been like for the women watching and waiting at the tomb? How do you feel when you have to wait?
Lord God as we wait today, all hope seems lost: Jesus is dead. Help us to know you are near us today and that there is hope as we put our faith in you. Amen
