Our church family will observe the 40 days of Lent before a joyous celebration on Easter Sunday. To help us prepare, draw a picture for our children’s devotional booklet and art gallery!

Use pencils, markers, crayons or paints. (Darker colors work best). Any size white drawing paper is fine, but it may need to be reduced to fit the booklet. Please write your name on each picture.

Stop by the Lenten Art Station in the Jones Building Foyer this Sunday, or create your picture at home this week to turn in.

Holy Week stories: 

  • Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey and people wave palm branches and shout “Hosanna!”
  • Jesus washes his disciples’ feet and shares the last supper with his disciples.
  • Jesus goes to the garden to pray. People are sad when Jesus dies.
  • On the third day, women learn that Jesus is alive. They run to share the good news. Alleluia!
