Why Preteens Dont Think Easter is a Big Deal
“Why do we celebrate Easter at all? It was on the Cross that Jesus paid for our sins and made a way for us to have eternal life. What’s the big deal about Jesus raising from the dead?” I would venture to say that most preteens don’t understand why we celebrate Easter.
I don’t think it’s enough to say to our preteens, “We celebrate Easter because Jesus rose from grave.”
I think we need to help our preteens understand WHY that is such a big deal; WHY his resurrection is a reason for us to celebrate.
The importance of the Resurrection cannot be understated. Easter is important! The Resurrection is important!
Let’s help the preteens in our life understand why. Take a few minutes to read this article from preteenministry.net to see how to use illustrations to help a preteen grasp the importance of the resurrection this Easter!
