a note from our cfumcp teachers

Our preschoolers have learned about the events leading to the crucifixion and resurrection and Jesus. They enjoyed making palm leaves and acting out the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. They learned that Jesus was a servant when He washed the feet of His friends and then had His last meal with them. They learned that Jesus' friends where very sad when he died, but we do not need to be sad because He is alive and He takes away our sin. We will celebrate the resurrection with an Easter egg hunt and cookie decorating party.
