Holy Week

Holy week was a very memorable time for the students and staff at Kingsway Christian.  The significance of all that Jesus experienced during the final week of his life on earth was broken down into daily devotions with thoughtfully chosen Scriptures shared by staff at both the lunch hour and in the evening.

Palm Sunday was celebrated enthusiastically with vibrant singing, dancing, and waving of palm branches as Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem was remembered.

On Monday, the focus was on Jesus Christ turning over the tables of the money changers in the temple.

Tuesday’s devotion revolved around Jesus teaching in the temple and his  authority being questioned by the chief priests and elders.

On Wednesday the students learned about the anointing of Jesus while he was in the home of Simon the Leper and how Judas decided to betray Jesus and spoke with the chief priests and the officers of the temple to discuss how this might be done.

The Last Supper Jesus and his disciples celebrated together along with the events following; praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus arrest,  being brought before the Sanhedrin, and Peter disowning Jesus were the focus of Thursday’s devotions.

On Good Friday the teaching brought the students to the cross where Jesus suffered and died for all our sins.  The evening included a time of worship in which the Almighty was honored, glorified and exalted for all that he did on our behalf.

Saturday the devotion was based on Matthew 27:62-66 which tells us that the tomb was made secure in order to prevent anyone from stealing Jesus’ body.

Easter Sunday was filled with jubilation and much rejoicing as the students sang Easter songs and celebrated Holy Communion led by Milly.
