Squeaky Clean Unit Overview:
Memory Verse: “But if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from everything we’ve done wrong.” 1 John 1:9 (CEB, also formatted for NIV and NLT)
Week 1: Squeaky Clean Sunday – Introduce the Squeaky Clean Easter theme, big idea, and unit memory verse. Using pixie sticks, syrup, and rubber ducks, kids will learn that even though sin sometimes looks good at first, it leaves us in a sticky mess that we can’t get out of by ourselves. (Plus, they’ll have a blast playing this game!)
Week 2: A Special Parade (Palm Sunday) – Kids will learn from Mark 11:1-11 about how the people of Jerusalem welcomed Jesus into the city with a big parade, shouting “Hosanna” which means “save now.” (They’ll also get to do this cute craft!)
Week 3: Jesus’ Crucifixion & Resurrection (Easter Sunday) – “He is not here! He has risen!” Kids will learn from excerpts from Matthew 27-28 about Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, using a fun science experiment to show how Jesus can wash away our sin and make us squeaky clean again.
Week 4: Baptism – Baptism is an outward sign of an inward heart change. It does not save us, but it helps us show others our faith in Jesus. Use this closing lesson to teach kids about baptism – what it is, why we do it, and why it’s important. (And use the provided Baptism Guide for Parents to include them in the conversation too!)
