Second Sunday in Easter, Intergenerational Lesson Plan, Year C
Scripture: John 20: 19-31
(Note: there are also lesson plans for each age group for this Sunday which contain more ideas and suggestions.)
Easter is another huge gift from God, building on not only the Christmas gift of the birth of Jesus, but also on the gifts that keep coming right here and now.
The Gospel reading today follows the discovery of the resurrected Jesus by the women at the tomb. Although several disciples raced to the tomb to see for themselves, they returned to the upper room reasonably sure that they would be the next to be killed. In that room Jesus appears to them, bringing peace and, after all he has been through, continuing to teach the message of peace and forgiveness.
