  1. Hi, John! This was an AWESOME children’s sermon that worked out amazingly at my church last Sunday. The whole moment revolved around me saying, “I didn’t expect that at all!” I asked children if they got Easter baskets and what was inside of them. When they said eggs, I asked what kind and got responses of chocolate and plastic…I told them I got rattlesnake eggs and “I didn’t expect that at all!” Then I said I opened it, and it ended up being a trick. “I didn’t expect that at all!” Then, I drew in the Easter story and talked about how the women went to the tomb and it was empty. “They didn’t expect that at all!” I wrapped it up by saying that some of the best news we have we never expected at all.

    Thanks for all you do here. It is very helpful and is a springboard for a lot of great children’s messages.
