Creating an Easter Sunday Lesson Plan

Easter Sunday is one of the most important holidays for Christians. The celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is fundamental to any Christian religion. Sunday school lessons on Easter Sunday should be prayerfully thought out prior to class. Focus on the importance of Christ's ministry, personal sacrifice as well as His ascension. Plan your lesson and deliver an essential lesson on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Here are some tips:

  • Orient your lesson to the age of your Sunday school class. Divide your lesson up into sections of about 15 minutes each for young children and 20 minutes for older children and adults.
  • Create or find pictures that add to your Easter lesson. Visual aids can add another dimension to your lesson because some individuals are visual learners. Ask student's to bring in themed photographs in preparation for the lesson.
  • Read the scriptures on the resurrection of Jesus from the Bible. Teach from the Bible. Ask your students to talk about their feelings about the scriptures. Discuss the imiportance of Christ's resurrection in your lives.
  • Make coloring pages or handouts for younger children. Use games or songs throughout the lesson to gain the children's interest. Offer small craft projects that emphasize core scriptures.
  • Write down questions to ask your students. Focus on important topics, and don't worry about making your students memorize every minute detail. Allow your class members to ask questions and use the Bible as your reference to answer those questions.

Easter Activities for Kids

On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus after his crucifixion and death on the cross. Church doors open on Easter morning to regular church attenders and those who don't normally meet on Sunday mornings for worship. Sunday school classrooms experience an attendance jump due to the newcomers. We need to ensure that children who visit church on Easter are met with an experience that is enjoyable and welcoming. Plan children activities that reinforce the story of the resurrection.

Easter Play

You could present an Easter play for the children about the women at the empty tomb. The front of a three-legged bridal arch can be covered with paper-mache to create an empty tomb, and a dark cloth can be thrown over the back. A small cot will fit inside the arch for the place where Jesus' body was laid.

Easter Feast

Have your children attend a party with foods that helps tell about the resurrection of Jesus which is what Easter is all about. You can decorate the plate with parsley as a bitter herb that reminds believers that Jesus' sacrifice was a bitter price for him to pay. An egg represents new life. Salt water represents the tears shed by Jesus' mother and followers. Broken stick pretzels represent Jesus' broken body for man's sins. Apple sauce reminds believers of the sweetness of love and redemption. The Easter cookies in my previous newsletter represent the empty tomb. A lamb cake represents Jesus' sacrifice as the Lamb of God.

Explain the symbolism of the foods. Invite the children to share in the "meal". You might even send home the Easter cookie recipe for the students to share with their Mom and Dad.
