Easter Weekend

I can't believe that Easter weekend is here! I'm taking my family out to get our pictures taken and to buy some new threads. I love getting our kids pictures taken and dressing them up. I want to look back and see how much they changed and what 'threads' we had them in. It's something my family always did and my wife does a great job of planning all of those things with our family. Here is a pic from my archives as a kid.



Those are some serious threads and some serious ears! Hilarious!! Anyway, this years message series beginning Easter Sunday is called 'thread.' Join us this weekend at 10 a.m. as we look at the connection between our threads and the hope that we have in the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Also, each year we try and do some special family activities during the holy week to help our kids understand the reality of Easter and the resurrection. I found a good link with lots of great ideas at christianity today's website, for more information, click here I also recommend the Miss Pattycake books, videos and the resurrection eggs from Family Life. Our kid's love them, learn from them and they are fun. Enjoy the Easter weekend and remember to focus on the reality of the resurrection!
