Good Friday and Easter for Children and Families

Good Friday Children's Program
   Friday, March 30, 2018
   5:30 p.m. in Buchanan Chapel

Although Good Friday is a vital component of the Easter story, the difficult subject of Jesus’ death is often omitted for children in favor of the easier celebrations of Palm Sunday and Easter morning. In order to help children better understand the Easter story, our Children’s Good Friday program is designed to help introduce Jesus’ death to them without overwhelming them with details.

Easter Sunday Children’s Event

   9:30 a.m. on the fourth and fifth floors of the Gratz Center

An Easter program for children four years of age through fifth grade is held at 9:30 a.m. on Easter morning. All children begin the morning together and then rotate between three different rooms, where they interact with figures from the Gospel stories and make Easter crafts. Children are then invited to go on an Easter egg hunt throughout the fifth floor of the Gratz Center.
