Entombed The Death of Christ About this Life Night This Life Night takes a closer look at the events of Holy Saturday – the death of Christ and His descent into hell. This night also addresses the teens’ fears and concerns about death, focusing on the hope won for us by Christ. The Life Night starts with a serious skit depicting the apostles on Holy Saturday. The Proclaim begins with a large group discussion and then a teaching on the death of Christ and how that affects our own death and judgment. The Break gives the teens a chance to talk about their own feelings about and experiences of death, and how we are given hope through Christ’s death. Finally, the Send consists of a reflection on Holy Saturday and a time to pray for the souls of those who have gone before us. Goal of This Night The goal for this Life Night is to help the teens understand what happened when Jesus died. This night will illumine the events of Holy Saturday and Jesus’ decent into hell. Finally, this night will address the issue of death and the promise of eternal life.

Even though we still experience physical death, because of Christ’s death (and Resurrection) we have the hope of eternal life. Our death (and the death of loved ones) should not be a fearful tragedy, but a celebration of eternal life won for us by Christ. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
