Trinity Lutheran Preschool jumped and shouted that Jesus is alive during their annual Easter Blessings concert at the CVIC Hall on March 30.
Students age 3-5 practiced for three weeks to perform songs “Peter Cotton Tail,” “We Believe,” “Hosanna,” “You Forgive Me” and more in front of the hall full of family and friends.
Bible verses Matthew 28:6, Peter 1:3 and John 3:16 were recited to help understand that Easter is about the celebration of new birth and hope through Jesus’ resurrection and God’s forgiveness and love to all.
The songs that followed helped students and parents understand the verses in a fun way.
The center’s curriculum includes daily Bible lessons and weekly chapel time where children learn about God and during holidays, stories, music and activities are incorporated to help teach what the holiday is about.
“It’s rewarding and amazing to see what preschoolers can do and to share the love of Jesus,” said Trinity Lutheran Preschool Director Joanne Tabor.
The performance was not only a celebration of the holiday, but to share what students learned about Easter with their families.
“We love it and parents love understanding the meaning of Easter with their children and to see them learning the reason we celebrate,” said Trinity Lutheran Assistant Director Samantha Tierney.
On Easter, Lampe Park will be filled with colored eggs during the Carson Valley Active 20-30 Club No. 85’s annual Easter Egg Hunt.
