The Friendship Club loves a yummy holiday treat, a fun craft, and spending time with family and friends! While we all love those parts of Easter, this month we are learning about the BEST reason to celebrate! We started out by learning about the perfect world that God created, a world free from trials. A world that looks a lot different from the place where we live now! Like many of you, the members of the Friendship Club experience frequent pain, anxiety, fear, illness, sadness, grief, and loneliness. We learned that unfortunately, Adam and Eve believed the lie that they could be happy apart from God which resulted in our world filled with sin. We also learned that God had a plan to rescue us, to bring us back to him, a plan with a hero whose name is Jesus! We ended our last group by focusing on Jesus, the rescuer and the one who walks with us in our good days and in our bad days. We will continue to learn to have HOPE and each week we sing, because of what Jesus did on Easter, “through it all my eyes are on You and it is well with my soul.”
