Bible Basis: Mark 16:1-8
Bible Truth: Jesus' closest followers were devastated by His crucifixion and validated by His resurrection.
Memory Verse: "And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him." (Mark 16:6)
Lesson AIM: That we will REMEMBER details of the discovery by Jesus' followers of HIs resurrection and the promise for the future; FEEL the devastating loss experienced by the women as well as the relief that comes from understanding how faith in God helps Christians survive their loss; and TELL one another stories of grief and to encourage and strengthen one another with assurance of good things to come through Jesus Christ.
