2 Weeks 2 the Cross begins this Sunday!

Our family’s Easter celebration, 2 Weeks 2 the Cross, begins this Sunday!

The resurrection of Jesus is THE most important event in all of history. In our home, we have sought for the last several years to help our children understand the significance of Jesus’s death and life by spending time together in God’s Word and through activities to reinforce those truths. 2 Weeks 2 the Cross places Jesus front and center in our hearts as we look forward to Easter Sunday.

Each day of 2 Weeks 2 the Cross, we will look at one icon around the cross hanging on a prominent wall in our living room. For example, the first day, the image is of a palm branch. The theme for that day is "Jesus came to save me." We will read Mark 11:1-11 together, and then make construction paper palm branches and shout Hosanna to imagine what it was like when Jesus made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
