Incredible Easter Ideas…

If you’ve got something incredible happening then it’s already planned and I’d love to hear it! If you haven’t then maybe you could use some creative help. I’d love to hear what ya’ll are doing. I think this is the coolest thing about blogging, finding out what others in places that I have no physical connection to, I hope you join the discussion.

We’re still trying to refine what we’ve got going on but here’s what we’re doing:

  • Maundy Thursday – Seder Family Dinner
  • Good Friday – Showing The Passion of the Christ
  • Saturday – Easter Egg Hunt and Family Brunch
  • Easter Sunday – we’ve got some special music, I think we’ll do Tim Hughes’ Happy Day as a prelude. I’ve been dieing to introduce it and I think this would be a great time to do that. We’re also using this Amena Brown video called Resurrection. If you haven’t heard of Amena Brown yet you are missing out! She is SICK! Creative spoken word artist is the best way I know how to describe her. Go get floored and pick up her EP. We have some baptisms which are always special. But I’m still looking for that one thing to do. Our pastor just had a brain burp with a new idea for what he could preach on so we’re kind of at bay until he decides which direction he wants to go in.

So what are you doing? What would you like to do? What have you not figured out?

    Here is an easter idea for the kids. I am an uncle who was trying to impress my nieces with making my gift giving to them an adventure. We all had so much fun, I decided to start my company enabling others to do the same experience. A “Giftventure” is a personalized treasure hunt that comes in the mail. We create a week-long adventure that leads a child to a gift you’ve hidden. When the gift is discovered, it is no longer just a present. It is a well-deserved reward at the end of a very satisfying and educational journey.

    Giftventure products can be done year around. This year we have a Easter adventure from … the Easter bunny! Click on our URL to see more. It sounds like you already have a lot of activities, but I’d love to hear if we might make a fun addition for the kids.

    We do something called “Journey To The Cross” which is a physical walk through the final locations and moments of Jesus’ life. It’s always a very life changing experience for all involved. During “Journey” we (the worship team) do music in the sanctuary for those who want to come worship before or after their experience. Pretty neat as the whole church will get involved in the production in some way shape or form.

    We’ve had some good creative Easter services, but one stood out. It was all based on the idea of “Image of Christ”. Mary not being able to see Jesus clearly thought he was the gardener…often we mistake who Christ is in our lives.

    In prep we had people bring in all their images of Christ–nativities, pictures, sculptures, etc. (It was amazing what people brought from their homes) and we placed them all on display in the sanctuary–no one was left out.

    We had also hoped to bring a “Jesus Painter” to come and paint during the service, but couldn’t work it out, so we bought a few of the Jesus painter’s prints, his DVD and showed him painting Christ on times square.

    It was all about the visual and worked well.

    2011 Easter ideas I came up with. We planted seeds as a part of our worship a couple of months ago illustrating the seed reamining alone unless it falls to the ground and dies from Jiohn 12. I have taken care of them since and on Easter we are having a Sonrise Celebration service at the grave side of one of our own . After the service with music, testimonies, scripture and readings, we will plant the seedlings from those seeds around a tree at cemetary. Plan to release heluim balloons later in our regular worship service to symbolize that all in Christ will rise again. Blessings 2 all, KJW
