Session 6 - Lent & Easter
Lent Is A Time to Become Closer To Jesus
Lent is a season of 40 days that leads us to Easter Sunday.
Lent is like springtime. It is a time for us to grow in God's love.
During Lent we learn about how Jesus gave us signs of His love.
We remember to pray, to make good choices, and to be kind to others.
Purple is the color of Lent.

Lent is a time to prepare for the celebration of Easter and the new life that Jesus brings us.
We follow Jesus through the forty days of Lent by praying , doing good things for others, and helping the poor .
Complete the steps on the road to Lent by filling in a way to pray, do good, or help others. Some ideas are already in place. Then put your ideas into practice

I ask this in Jesus' name,
