Easter M&M Story: “The Sweet Truth of Easter”

It’s Holy Week, so for those of you who are working or volunteering with children in churches, it’s a busy and exciting time. I love when I come across something fresh and fun that conveys the Gospel, and today’s post shares just that! You might remember this post about the M&M Christmas Story….Well…Bethany Tapp, a children’s Ministry Director in Dubai, India, has created an M&M Easter Story! Here is the poem she wrote:

Poem: The SWEET Truth of Easter

These candies tell a story~
the best news you’ll ever hear.
~It’s about Jesus dying on the cross
so that we could be brought near.

So hold them and turn them and you will see…
the “M” become a “W”an “E” and then a “3″

The “E” stands for… Easter….
God’s everlasting love and His eternal plan.

It reminds us of the cross
and the way God rescued sinful man

The “3″ represent the 3 days Jesus spent in the grave….
By His death, His children He did save

The “M” reminds us of the mercy the Messiah showed
as He died in our place.
and the miracle of the resurrection
so we can see Him face to face.

The “W” reminds us… that He alone
is worthy of our worship and praise
and calls us to be His witnesses
around the world for all of our days.
~By Bethany Tapp

Bethany has also created a printable that you can distribute…you can download it here at Ministry To Children. (and, if you’re not yet familiar with this website, please take some time to click through it…wonderful, helpful resources! Tony Kummer is the site’s administrator.)

Thanks, Bethany, for this great resource!
