Help families make space together for meaningful worship and devotional time this Easter by combining the reading of the Easter story with specific art processes and conversation prompts designed to create discussion and a personal connection to the story.
He is Risen – A Family Easter Worship Guide walks families through Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday using different art processes, readings, and conversation prompts as a way of celebrating Jesus’ resurrection and personally engaging with the Easter story!
For each of the 3 special Easter days, families will complete an activity with four elements: set up, pray, read, and create. These four elements help families make meaningful space to hear and respond to the Easter story. Some of the sections have been broken up into age-appropriate steps so that no matter their age, each participant can find a meaningful way to join in.
All three art processes culminate in a single piece of art that you will want to pin up all year round as a reminder of the beauty and central importance of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection!
