Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed
Today, we are learning about the most important day in every church: Easter Sunday — which is today! It is the most exciting day of the year for everybody who loves Jesus. We also like to call today "Resurrection Sunday" since today is the day we celebrate when Jesus came back to life (or "He resurrected from the dead"). He died on a Friday which is what we remembered two days ago here in church; that day is called "Good Friday" and it is the day Jesus died on the cross. But today we are celebrating that He came back to life and that his tomb/grave was empty!
