CHILDREN’S STORY:

 

Jesus and his apostles traveled to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover. As Jesus entered the city riding on a colt, people spread their cloaks on the road before him.

 

“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest,” they shouted.

 

Jesus and his friends ate the Passover meal in a large upper room of a house in the city. During the meal — which Christians call the Last Supper — Jesus instituted the Eucharist and explained that one of his friends would betray him.

 CHILDREN’S STORY:

 

Moses was married to a daughter of Jethro, the priest of Midian. One day, Moses was tending his father-in-law’s flock near Horeb, the mountain of God.

 

As Moses walked along, something strange caught his eye. A nearby bush was on fire, but the flames were not destroying it.

 

“I must go over to look at this remarkable sight, and see why the bush is not burned,” Moses said.

 

God saw that the burning bush had caught Moses’ attention.   “Moses. Moses.” God called out from the bush.

After Jesus was baptized, he was filled with the Holy Spirit. The spirit then led him into the desert to spend 40 days there and to be tempted by the devil.

 

Jesus did not have anything to eat during this time, so at the end of the 40 days, he was very hungry.

 

The devil knew this and tried to use Jesus’ hunger to tempt him into doing something he shouldn’t.

 

“If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread,” the devil said to Jesus.

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth didn’t have any form.

 

Over the course of six days, God formed the earth and created everything on it. And at the end of each day’s work, he saw that all he created was good.

 

On the first day, God said, “Let there be light.” He separated the darkness from the light, calling the light “day” and the darkness “night.”

 

“Let there be a dome in the middle of the waters, to separate one body of water from the other,” God said on the second day. He called the dome “the sky.”

CHILDREN'S STORY

 

God was unhappy with King Ahab of Israel. Ahab was evil and did a lot of bad things, one of which was marrying Jezebel, a pagan who got the king to worship the false god Baal. 

 

So the Lord sent his prophet, Elijah, to give Ahab a warning. 

 

God said that no dew or rain would fall on the land for a long time. The dew and rain would only come again when God instructed Elijah to say so. 

 

After Elijah delivered God’s message, God told him to go into hiding.
