The Easter Garden

The Easter Garden

by Marcia Stoner, Daphna Flegal

Other Format



The Easter Garden is a special place to explore the story and the symbols of Holy Week. Time in The Easter Garden is spent exploring the Bible, making symbols of Lent as special gifts, and preparing for a presentation of the story of the Easter. While in the shop, children of all ages will begin with large group Lenten worship, divide into age-level groupings that will explore one important section of the “garden,” serve others by creating gifts for those whose hearts and lives may need special attention, and prepare to be part of the presentation of the Easter story.

Includes an intergenerational worship with the presentation of the Easter story and suggestions for making The Easter Garden a one-day event. Featured symbols: palm tree (palm Sunday), grape arbor (Last Supper), stream (washing of feet), rooster (Peter’s denial), rock (prayer in the garden), cross (crucifixion), lily, and a butterfly (Easter).
