    Did anyone do any April Fools Day jokes? In Sunday school the guys sit on one side and the girls sit on the other side.The girls are always in their seats first bc the boys open doors for people until right when the bell rings so I switched seats with the boys when they were gone and when they walked in the girls said April fools!Also I told my friend her shoe was untied and she looked down.She was wearing heels. My pastor said he was gonna preach a sermon called “God is dead… April Fools!”

    @Everyone. I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. What did you do ? Just keep in mind that Easter is not about food Easter eggs.bunnys and stuff . That stuff is fun but Easter is about Jesus Christ risen from the dead and how that means eternal life in Christ Jesus . It gives us eternal life in Jesus for those who accepts Jesus as Lord and Savior.
