Many churches will begin the Lenten season this week. So, I’m including some Bible lessons to use leading up to Easter and the heart of the Gospel story. These will be helpful even if your church doesn’t talk much about the tradition of Lent.
- Parable of the Two Sons
- The Good Samaritan
- Parable of the Great Feast
- Parable of the Foolish Rich Man
- Parable of the Lost Coin
- Coloring Pages about Jesus
- Who is my King? Gospel Coloring Book
We’ve also created a special coloring sheet to help children better understand the tradition of Lent in their churches. It reminds them that our small sacrifice is mainly to help us better remember the sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf.
What is Lent? Lent is a 40 day journey (not counting Sundays!) to focus on God and prepare to remember and celebrate Jesus dying on the cross and rising from the grave to save each of us. Many people decide to “give up” things for Lent to help them remember that Jesus gave his life for us, but you can also “take on” doing good things, just like Jesus did.
