More than simply needing something to do this Easter, we want to make an impact in the lives of the kids and families we serve. But making an impact on a budget can be hard.
But it’s now possible with RISE UP!
For $99, leaders have access to 5 weeks of fully-resourced lessons from the Wonder Ink Easter series, including activities for families at home during the week. Plus, get everything you need for an event, including promotional materials to either kick-off or wrap-up the Easter season.
Celebrate new life this Easter!
RISE UP: What’s the Story?
This 5-part series teaches toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary kids that because of Jesus’ love and sacrifice, they can experience life in Him! The power that raised Jesus is the same power that dwells within His followers. This Easter, celebrate our risen Savior as kids journey from the Old Testament to the New.
Whether in a valley of dry bones, in the belly of a huge fish, in the thick of pain and grief, on the side of a Jerusalem road, or outside of Jesus’ tomb, people in the Bible experienced new life from God.
Sin brings death, but God brings life in Jesus!
- Lesson 1 is about Ezekiel and the Dry Bones (Ezekiel 37) and how God has good news for His people.
- Lesson 2 shares the story of Jonah (Jonah 1–4; Matthew 12) and how God has good news for the whole world.
- Lesson 3 features the story of Lazarus (John 11) and how Jesus has power over death.
- Lesson 4 celebrates the Triumphal Entry as Jesus Enters Jerusalem (Mark 11) and how Jesus is king.
- Lesson 5 covers the Crucifixion and Resurrection (Matthew 27–28) as kids celebrate Jesus is risen!
What’s Included in the RISE UP Lesson Materials?
Each Wonder Ink lesson is divided into 4 sections: Curiosity, Belief, Faith, and Identity.
The curiosity lesson step is a multi-sensory object lesson, STEM experiment, or group activity that sparks curiosity, encourages exploration, and gets kids thinking about the wonder of God.
The belief lesson step is a deep and interactive dive into Scripture that guides kids into knowing God more deeply, exploring His Big Story, and marveling at His wonder.
The faith lesson step is an intentional conversation that helps kids see the wonder of God’s Story and how it connects to their own, emboldening their faith, and fostering a deeper understanding of their place in God’s kingdom.
The identity lesson step is an interactive response activity that ushers kids into worship and creates space for Him to remind them of these core truths: I am known by God, I am loved by Jesus, I am led by the Holy Spirit, and my life can tell of God’s wonder.
