Check out all the great content at kidscorner.net, like KC’s Lent and Easter Collection.

Groundwork: The Shame Of The Cross - As we seek to comprehend the fullness of Jesus’ sacrifice, we need to revisit the shame of the cross. Join Groundwork as we study Isaiah 53:1-3, Philippians 2:5-8, Genesis 2:25, Genesis 3:7-10, Hebrews 12:1-3, and 1 Peter 2:4-6 to examine the relationship between sin and shame and unpack why Jesus’ experience of shame was necessary for our salvation.

Groundwork: The Paradox Of The Cross - In the Roman empire, the cross brought death in a brutal, humiliating way. But believers of Jesus Christ find life in the cross. Join Groundwork as we study 1 Corinthians 1:18-31, Romans 5:1-11, and Ephesians 2:8-10 to study the paradox of the cross, remember the profound love of God, and learn how we should live in light of this paradox.

Groundwork: The Complete Sufficiency Of The Cross - Christ’s sacrifice is completely sufficient to satisfy God’s wrath, and yet, sometimes we forget. Join Groundwork as we study Isaiah 53:6; Galatians 2:20-21, 3:1-3, 3:24-27, & 6:14-15; and Romans 5:9-11 & 6:1-4 to discuss the source of this truth, how we can keep our fears at bay, and how we can keep a right perspective about our salvation and our deeds.

Kids Corner: Healing Love - Check out this week’s kids’ devotion at www.kidscorner.net. Jesus goes to the tomb where Lazarus’ family laid him to rest, and miraculously restores Lazarus to life. Jesus also healed Lazarus’ family’s broken hearts. It restored their joy. We might not be able to heal physically those we love as Jesus did. But, like Jesus, we can come alongside them and demonstrate God’s never-ending, always-present love. Check out all the great content at kidscorner.net, like KC’s Lent and Easter Collection.

Kids Corner: The Not-So-Triumphal Entry - Check out this week’s kids’ devotion at www.kidscorner.net. Ever wonder why Jesus chose to ride a donkey?

Kids Corner: Called By Name - Check out this week’s kids’ devotion at www.kidscorner.net. Mary was alone at the tomb. Then she met Jesus but didn’t recognize him.

Kids Corner: Creativity in Action - Check out this week’s kids’ devotion at www.kidscorner.net.
