From the triumphal entry to experiencing the darkness of the tomb, Northwest Christian middle school students will observe all of the events leading up to the resurrection of Jesus Christ in a dramatic and personal way during a special “Stations of the Resurrection” activity on Friday, April 3rd, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
The students will celebrate Holy Week by reliving Jesus’ week of Passion from Palm Sunday to the Last Supper, the Cross, and the Resurrection with a focus on scripture, personal reflection, and unique hand-on activities. The activities are presented by the middle school Leadership class. Students lead students through each activity.
Each student will have an opportunity to place themselves in the garden and reflect on if they would have ran or stayed the course; they will also be blindfolded and sit in a darkened room to identify with Jesus being in the tomb for three days; and, to celebrate the resurrection, middle schoolers will write a note of praise to God and “nail it” on a symbolic cross.
“The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the foundation of our Christian faith,” says NWC Middle School Principal Dave Jennings. “Jesus died for the forgiveness of our sins and He rose again so that we can have a personal relationship with God. The Stations of the Resurrection activity gives us the opportunity to celebrate this good news.”
