Savior risen

Sins forgiven

May the spirit of hope that Easter brings,

Help you find contentment in little things,

And restore your faith in the Lord above,

Who gave His life for the ones He loves.

Let us give thanks to
the risen Lord
for His glorious
gift of life

Wishing You
A Blessed Easter Season


Sing to the Lord a new song!
For flowers and bunnies and
birds that sing.
We thank you, Lord,
for everything.

Blessings on You at Easter


Face to face with Christ my Savior,

Face to face, what shall it be, 

When at last I shall behold Him, 

Jesus Christ who died for me.
Face to face I shall behold Him, 

Far beyond the starry sea,

Face to face in all His Glory,

Jesus Christ who died for Me.


Do you know the story of Easter?
Of course you get Easter eggs so yummy
But Easter is about much more
Than just good things for your tummy

It is a Christian Church Festival
Held every Spring
About the death of Jesus...that's bad
And his coming to life again...Good Thing !

Palm Sunday is a week before Easter
It celebrates when Jesus rode into Jerusalem town
On a donkey, which walked over
All the coats that the people threw down

Christian Easter Poems for Children

The people who didn’t have coats

Went to the fields where they found

Palm branches which they spread

All across the ground

These people knew that Jesus was special.
It was like when a King comes to town,
They didn’t have a red carpet
So they laid their coats, and branches down.

Story of Easter for Children

And to this day a donkey is special
Because it carried Jesus with care~
If you look at the back of a donkey
You’ll see a cross is still there

Next comes the day of the Last Supper
Maundy Thursday, when Judas was Jesus’ enemy
For silver money, he betrayed his friend
In the Garden of Gethsemane

Maundy means commandment
Jesus said at the Last Supper“I am your brother
As I have loved you
You must love one another”

The Queen of Britain gives money
Every Maundy Day
To people who are old
And no longer get any pay

Christian Easter Poems for Children

The next day is Good Friday
The day Jesus was crucified
Two days later, on Easter Sunday he said
"I've come back...coz I've just un-died

He didn't stay long with his friends
He didn't die, but rather
He went straight up to Heaven
To join God, which art (who was) His Father

The word Easter comes from Eostre
The name of a Saxon godd-ess
Who found a little bird
In a little bit of a mess

The poor bird couldn't fly
It had lost more than a feather
So the goddess turned it into a hare
To survive the Winter weather
+ Christian Easter Poems +

The hare found it could lay eggs
Which was a very strange thing
So it decorated the eggs and gave them
To the goddess every Spring

If you think that a hare laying eggs
Is so very funny
that's why we have Easter eggs
And of course, the Easter Bunny

The Week From Palm Sunday To Easter Sunday summed up in New Testament quotes

Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, Meek, and riding upon an ass
I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.

Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?

Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.

Pilate washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I  am innocent of this man's blood,”

And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,

"and they crucified Him" (Mark 15:24).

The centurion exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!"

Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

Now Mary stood outside the tomb crying. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb
The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name.

Earth’s saddest day (Good Friday) and gladdest day (Easter Sunday) were just three days apart.

Susan Coolidge


The Easter feeling does not end.

It signals a new beginning,

Of nature, spring, and brand new life,

And friendship, peace, and giving.

The spirit of Easter is all about

Hope, love, and joyful living.


Things are different now
Something happened to me
When I gave my life to Jesus Christ
Things I loved before
Have passed away
Things I never loved
Have come to stay
Things are different now
Something happened to me
When I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ

Easter is a promise God renews to us each spring

A promise that we’ll always have Him there,

And like the flowers that bloom so bright

And birds that sweetly sing,

We always will receive His tender care,

A promise that He’ll hold us up

Each time we start to fall

And see us through each hour of care and strife.

Easter is God’s promise

That His love rules over all,

And through Him

We will have eternal life. 

Amanda Bradley


May the glory of our living Lord renew you hopes, your faith, your joy.
Have a Blessed Easter Season


When Jesus rose to new life,
brought us a promise...
a promise
to be with us always.
And you
can be sure that
He is watching
over you this Easter...
Just as He
has always taken care of those
he loves.

Have A Blessed Easter
