The reality is that we live in light of the resurrection every second of every day.

Our storyline as followers of Jesus doesn’t begin and end on Resurrection Sunday – it’s a grander narrative that we live in and out of in each moment of our lives. Living as Easter people breaks down the sacred and secular divide and reminds us that everything we do can be done with the mindset, joy, and heart posture of those who are celebrating the resurrection.

Each of the 4 weeks in July, there will be a challenge. We will list a few ideas for completing the challenge, but please feel freedom in your expression. You can be as whimsical or simple as you’d like. Then share your story with us! Details for how to share each challenge will be listed below.

We need this time. We need this reminder. And we need to remind the world that there are people who live in celebration of all that the resurrection means. There are people who are…

Because we are Easter People…

 

We Celebrate!

 

Some Ideas:

Get frozen treats | hold a themed costume party | host a fancy dinner at home | deliver party decorations or balloons to neighbors so they can celebrate too | hang Christmas decorations or a homemade banner outside your home
