!!! Easter Lessons, Events, Games !!!
A large picture with four Christian Faith symbols is shown to your audience. You choose a volunteer to verbally select one of the four symbols. When you turn the picture around, their selection matches exactly to a card you have attached to the back of your picture!
The match is always correct, no matter which of the four symbols your volunteer selects!
No sleight of hand is needed!
Teaching points are provided for each of the four picture. Moreover, you can easily use this to present many other fundamental teachings from scripture such as: Easter, Last Supper, salvation, Baptism in the Holy Spirit, Communion, etc...
This is a REMARKABLE Easter lesson that parodies one of the most popular apps our kids are playing on their iPods, iPads, & smartphones titled “What’s the Word?”.
When producing this lesson, “What’s the Word” was showing an OUTSTANDING 5 Star rating with nearly 580,000 user votes in the iTunes app store!
“What’s the Word for Easter?” provides your kids with four levels of gameplay centered upon words from the last days of Christ’s life on earth prior to His death and resurrection. Each of the four rounds (19 games total) culminates with a keyword to use as a discussion point with your group.
The four points highlight:
- We cannot do anything ourselves to get rid of our sins.
- Jesus’ resurrection removes the sin barrier between us and God.
- Accepting Jesus’ death on the cross for us frees us from the harm of sin now and forever.
- Choose God’s plan of salvation now so you can reign with God in His Kingdom for eternity!
There are four rounds of play, each climaxing with a KEYWORD you use for your teaching/discussion point. Each game consists of 4 pictures, an empty grid showing how many letters are in the word to be solved, a grid of 12 letters to use in solving the secret word, a HELP icon (when clicked reveals one letter), and a PROBLEM SOLVERS icon to solve the secret word.
Each game shows 4 pictures that have one word in common among them. For example, if you see a fish bowl, a cereal bowl, someone bowling, and a pet food bowl, the word is BOWL!
We agree with the description of the game which this lesson parodies. Indeed it is, “Surprisingly simple, amazingly addictive, everyone’s favorite new game!”
“What’s the Word for Easter?” creates an intriguing atmosphere for bringing the story of Easter to life in a fresh and interactive way.
This is a wonderfully easy Gospel Magic Object Lesson to present which visually illustrates that Christ conquered death by rising from the dead.
Here is What Happens!
You show the back of three fanned cards to each have a picture of a sealed tomb. Turning the fanned cards around, you show that the other sides of the cards contain pictures of a cross. The two outer cards each have a black cross; the center card has a red cross. Turn one card around to show the tomb and place it in front of the other two cards. As you approach the end of your lesson, you turn the tomb card back around again to show that the two black crosses have remained the same; however, the center red cross has changed into a picture of Christ!

Note from Pastor Gary - Easter is a marvelous celebration of the greatest moment in the history of man; God's redemptive love was enacted through His Son, Jesus Christ. With the ever-increasing commercialization of Easter as a holiday of candy and new toys, it becomes even more imperative that we instill within the hearts and spirits of our children the true meaning of this miraculous holiday.
We must help our kids truly BELIEVE in Jesus Christ's sacrifice and His atoning work through the cross, tomb, and resurrection. The key purpose of this kids' worship lesson is to bring focus upon the realization that our salvation hinges upon the truth that we must believe. You will explore the Apostle John's comments from John 20:27-31 where he clearly explains why he told the story of Christ's ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension. John says that his purpose in writing his gospel is "so you may believe."
For the lesson you will need: 2 Boxes of Cereal, Small Inedible Items, 4 Bowls, Kitty Litter and Pan, 2 Scoops or Slotted Spoons, Artificial Flower

Here is an interactive way to present the story of Christ's triumphal entry, death, resurrection, and ascension which culminates with the marvelous truth that Christ did this for YOU! More than ever before in history, we live in an impersonal world. We have become accustomed to communicating via email, text message, and social websites. It is going almost unnoticed that this is impacting our spiritual relationships and growth. The main point of this message is to bring the focus back to the truth of the close and personal relationship God desires to have with His children.
Prior to using 9 stage-size picture illustrations for teaching your lesson, a volunteer from your group selects a picture from a tic-tac-toe style grid without letting you know their choice. Using a stack of several identical cards prepared with sections cut out, you and your volunteer divide the cards into two stacks. As you lay the last card down onto its stack, you instantly know which picture your volunteer has selected.
All you need is a printer, sharp knife, and cardstock to perform this amazing effect.
