Season of the Church Year: Lent (Liturgical Color: purple)
Story in Scripture: Matthew 3: 13-17
Throughout the Season on Lent, these Family Pages will consist of sharing the short story lesson that your child participated in, as well as the image that was used to convey the meaning of this day of preparation. Please hold on to all of the Lent summaries so that you can reflect on them again and again as we prepare for Easter and Jesus’ resurrection.
‘No,’ said Jesus, ‘It is written that you will come before me and prepare the way. Baptize me.’ Jesus went down into the darkness and chaos of the water. When John lifted back into the light, a dove came down from heaven and came close to him. A voice came from heaven that said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’
After Jesus was baptized, he went on across the River Jordan into the desert to learn more about what God planned for him to do.”
