As a follow-up to our Easter lesson, the kids in the Child Development Program are making butterfly crafts this week. We’re relating the metamorphosis that the caterpillar goes through to the change that occurs when we have Christ in us. We’re also reading the story of Saul and what happened to him on the road to Damascus; he’s a great example of a life completely changed by Jesus!
The kids had a blast decorating their butterflies with crayons, paper and glitter-glue, and they loved showing off their creations. Please pray that the message will sink in and stay with them for years to come: that they, too, are just like butterflies — new creations in and because of Jesus!
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5.17, NIV
