OPENING ACTIVITY: Cocoon to Butterfly (Activity Taken & Modified From: https://childrensministry.com/jesus-raises-lazarus-dead/ ) MATERIALS NEEDED: Paper, Pencil, Scissors, & Colored Pencils/Crayons DIRECTIONS: 1. Have your child place their hands on the piece of paper with their thumbs pointed up and touching each other(this is the body of the butterfly). Keep the remaining fingers together as they go out in opposite directions(these are the wings of the butterfly). Trace your child’s hands to create the butterfly 2. Have your child cut out and decorate the butterfly. 3. Gently, have your child roll up their butterfly with the blank side facing out (like a cocoon). Talk about how a butterfly has new life when it emerges from its cocoon (unroll the butterfly). **Today we are going to hear about a story about how Jesus gave one man new life.

But it is even more comforting to know that You have power over death and the grave and that one day we will be in heaven with You--and then there will be no more tears. Just like a butterfly finds new life when it comes out of its cocoon, and You gave Lazarus new life, we will have new life with you in heaven someday! In Jesus’ name, AMEN! ADDITIONAL ACTIVITY: If you have enough toilet paper to spare. :) Use rolls of toilet paper to “prepare a body for burial” by wrapping them up in it and letting them “come alive” when “Jesus” says, ‘Lazarus, come out!’
