LCMS Worship is pleased to offer a coloring book to help children follow along at the Easter Vigil. This special Divine Service — which includes fire, movement, stories, music, special decorations and dynamic lighting — is an ideal learning environment for children, who learn by seeing, hearing, touching and doing.

Edward Riojas (father and artist) has brought each prophecy and liturgical element to life in elegant line art, rich in references to common symbolism in the Lutheran tradition. Jessie Bell (mom and homeschool teacher) has provided commentary and a guide for each picture to help you talk together with your family about the Scriptures and the service.

This Easter Vigil, come watch and revel together as a family in our Lord’s great history of salvation. Bring this coloring book along to help your children better understand this most holy night.
