EASTER SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP
April 5, 9:00am & 11:00am
Our Easter services will be held at the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center in the Walt Disney Theater. We offer free childcare for infants through kindergarten-age children in First Pres' Clayton Life Center. Children first-grade and up join their families for Easter worship. For a smooth transition, we encourage you to drop off your children 30 minutes before the service begins. Childcare opens at 8am for early arrivals.
Every family using Easter childcare must complete a release form either online or hardcopy (available in advance or Easter morning). Visit easterinthecity.com for more details and to fill out the release form online.

SUNDAY CAR TALK
Questions to ask your children on the way home...
1ST - 4TH GRADE
Big Picture Question: Why did God scatter His people? (God’s people sinned against Him.)
- Who was the king of the Northern Kingdom of Israel at the time of Israel’s destruction and exile? (King Hoshea; 2 Kings 17:1)
- With which king did Hoshea secretly make a deal? (the king of Egypt; 2 Kings 17:4)
- Which country attacked Israel, imprisoned Hoshea, and surrounded the capital city of Samaria for three years? (Assyria; 2 Kings 17:5)
- Who warned the Israelites not to worship idols? (the prophets; 2 Kings 17:13)
- Who took the punishment for our sin? (Jesus took the punishment for our sin upon Himself. Jesus brings us into God’s presence and keeps us there.)
Christ Connection: When the Israelites disobeyed God, God judged their sin and punished them by removing them from His presence. Jesus took the punishment for our sin upon Himself. He unites and restores those who trust in Him. Jesus brings us into God’s presence and keeps us there.
