Remember, this Easter could be the very first time EVER for some of the preschoolers at your church to hear the true story of Easter. And for others, this could be their first time ever even going to church. We have the awesome opportunity to tell them for the first time about how Jesus washed His disciples’ feet; made His triumphal entry; died and rose again; built... Read More
