Easter Effort: You’ve Been Egged

Easter Effort: You’ve Been Egged

What’s your favorite part about celebrating Easter at your church?

Easter is always exciting, but this year was particularly fun. We planned some music, video testimonies and baptisms to go along with the theme of resurrection.

Share one cool way your church is spreading the word about Easter this year:

This year we picked up on an idea others have used in the past. We planned a “You’ve Been Egged” event where people in the church hid eggs in people’s yard. A sign was left in each yard saying, “You’ve been egged. We hid 12 eggs in your yard. One of them is empty, but don’t worry. The empty egg reminds us of the empty tomb.”

How do you keep your focus on the joy of Easter amid the stress of looming deadlines and long hours?

Easter is always stressful and this year was no different. I know it sounds cliche, but prayer makes a huge difference. Pressing into prayer and time alone with God helps take the edge off.

And how did it go?
