April 8: Lazarus Saturday Kids Activities

Holy Protection’s Sunday School is going to have some activities for kids on Lazarus Saturday, April 8, right after the Divine Liturgy. The Divine Liturgy begins at 9:30am.

We will start with a modified version of the “Hot potato” game (Here are instructions for the game) in which the kids will have an opportunity to get back into the game. We will tie their anticipation of getting back into the game with the hope and faith in resurrection.

Older students will present a skit on the death and resurrection of St. Lazarus. The fun part for the younger group is unwrapping the Lazarus (Jesus said: “Unbind him and let him go”)!Our Martha (and Mary) will serve the cookies (“lazarki”) and fruit at the end and everyone will get a scroll with a prize.

Please come and join us. We pray that this will be a meaningful experience for everyone, while providing our kids a fun way to learn.

UPDATE (Apr. 8, 2017):

Thank you to everyone who participated in today’s activities following after the Liturgy.  The kids had fun playing the “hot potato” game.  The actors had fun re-enacting the raising of Lazarus, and the parents and other children had fun watching.  And the snack time afterwards was a beautiful time visiting together.
