Read the Easter Story: Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-18
God has faithfully gone before us to establish a network of technology to keep us connected, though we remain physically apart. Log on this Easter season, and know even though we aren’t all physically together, we still gather in the presence of God. God promises, “for where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:20 ESV) Share the link to the service, for many who only attend church on major holidays, might not be as familiar with how to navigate to church online.

Read this story about the legend of Easter Eggs then color some together as a family.
Create a family worship space and decorate it with signs of new life and symbols of Easter to kick off Eastertide. Each week during the Easter season, read a passage detailing the events following Easter morning.
Decorate paper Easter eggs with bright colors and messages of hope and joy--use this template--and take a walk through your neighborhood hiding the eggs as you go. Invite neighbors (through phone calls, texts or Facebook posts) to go on a physically distant Easter egg hunt.
Color your driveway and sidewalks with truth from God’s Word and bright pictures to brighten another’s day spreading the very love Jesus died to give us. We are blessed when we are a blessing. It lifts our spirits to encourage another. Draw the promises and truths of Easter up and down the sidewalk, driveway, or front steps. Trace the shape of a cross, and “He is risen!”
