This year at our church (House of Praise) we set out to make Easter the best Easter we’ve ever had. We produced a 15 minute CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) style drama with professionally done video and scenery as a background. The sermon followed the theme by investigating the scripture on the resurrection. The music team brought excellence and creativity to the service. The Children’s Department set up a cafe style setting and had fun things like a bouncy room. Our volunteers were on point, greeting, seating and treating people well. We gave gifts to guests and then we did everything we could to get people to come. We mailed out 12,000 oversize post cards, we challenged our members to invite 10 people each, and the outreach team handed out hundreds of invites at the local Wal*Mart. The results? Best Easter Ever! Why do I say that?
- 0ver 430 people attended (Our highest ever!)
- At least 10 people accepted Christ for the 1st time (filled out a card to tell us)
- At least 7 people rededicated their lives to following Christ
- Many people returned to church
- Many stories of life change already coming in
What this means is all of us didn’t just have a great service but lives were changed and the Kingdom of God advanced!
You can still make it your best Easter ever by committing to let the resurrected Savior run your life. You can decide to live differently that before Easter, to expect God to be present in your life. You can expect God to flow through you to help others meet the risen Lord.
Make this the best Easter ever in your life by taking the power of the Resurrection with you into the rest of the year…expect new life ahead. Best Easter ever…
