April Sunday School Series - Clue

When we think of Easter, we may think of dying eggs, egg hunts, the Easter bunny, and dressing up in your Sunday best on Easter Sunday. But there’s so much more to Easter than that. What really happened to Jesus over 2,000 years ago, and how does it affect us today? In this series, kids will become detectives to look for clues and discover the true meaning of Easter. Kids will learn about Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey, Jesus celebrating a special meal with His disciples, the crucifixion and resurrection, and Jesus ascending to heaven and giving His followers a special mission.

Easter Eggstravaganza - April 20th - 4:00 p.m.

This year’s Easter Eggstravaganza will include crafts, snacks, games and of course, an egg hunt on the lawn at at Platte City UMC. All are welcome to attend this free community event.
