Welcome to April! We start the month with The Bible. No, that wasn’t a typo. Think about it, in some ways the entire Bible is a lesson in patience. Not because it takes so long to read from cover to cover, but because often people are seen waiting . . . for God to speak, for the rescuer to arrive. That’s why we kick off April with the Easter story and the story of the Bible that introduces us to Jesus—His life, death, and most importantly His resurrection. A fitting way to celebrate that Jesus is alive!

Bottom Line: Jesus is alive! God sent Jesus to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. This week, we want to be sure that every child leaves knowing how much God loves them and made a way for them to have a relationship with Him forever.
