Students and Easter
Easter and the week leading up to it are important days to reflect upon Christ. We can look back on the miracle that happened long ago. We asked students questions about Easter and Jesus’ final days on Earth. See how they responded:

We love what The Esther School students shared! Every day, The Esther School students hear the Gospel – in morning devotions, Bible class, Chapel, and conversations with their teachers and peers. God is impacting his children by teaching them that He loves them, He has a plan for them, and they belong to Him!
