There is a Christian saying that "prophets died, saints died, great men died - none of them ever returned to life. When Jesus died some people remembered that he had foretold his resurrection..."



So it is a time to celebrate. To celebrate that our Lord, who appeared on Earth for the good of mankind, is always with us. Do you need Easter Invitations for your Worship Service?

A lot of churches have Homemade Easter Ideas. Several of them will have a play of "The Passion" that tells us all about how Jesus loved us so much that he gave his life on the cross for you and for me that we can have everlasting life. Because he lives we can see tomorrow! There is a flyer below for "The Passion".

Easter Cookie Recipe

Make these cookies with your children to teach the true meaning of Easter!

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup whole pecans
  • 1 Teaspoon Vinegar
  • 3 Egg whites
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • Zipper baggie
  • Tape
  • Bibie

Instructions:

  • 1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place the pecans in the baggie and let the kids beat them with the wooden spoon to break them into pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested, He was beaten by the Roman soldiers. Read John 19:1-3
  • 2. Put the vinegar into a mixing bowl. Let each child smell the vinegar. Explain that when Jesus was on the cross and He became thirsty, He was offered vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30
  • 3. Add the egg whites to the vinegar. The eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life so that we could have life. Read John 10:10-11
  • 4. Sprinkle a little salt into each child’s hand and let them taste it. Put the rest into a bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus’ followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27
  • 5. So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 cup of sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him. Read Psalm 34:8 and John 3:16
  • 6. Beat the egg whites with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Explain that the color white represents the purity in God’s eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read Isaiah 1:18 and John 3:1-3
  • 7. Fold in the broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto a wax paper cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus body was laid to rest. Read Matthew 27:57-60
  • 8. Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven off.
  • 9. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the door. Explain that Jesus tomb was sealed. Read Matthew 27:65-66
  • 10. Go to bed. Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight and that Jesus followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20-22
  • 11. On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the First Easter, Jesus’ followers were amazed to find His tomb empty. Yes, Jesus Lives! Read Matthew 28:1-9

Easter Egg Hunt with Resurrection Eggs

06515X: Resurrection Eggs - 2014 updated edition Resurrection Eggs - 2014 updated edition
By Familylife

Crack open the glorious story of Jesus' resurrection! Stored in a plastic carton, a dozen rainbow-hued eggs are filled with surprises. Pop them open and find miniature symbols of Easter inside! An updated companion booklet in English and Spanish features illustrated Bible stories explaining the significance of each object. Includes decorative stickers! Ages 5 and up.

Resurrection Eggs can be created or bought - each plastic egg has an object pertaining to the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Colorful plastic eggs with visual reminders are a proven learning tool for children 3 and up.

Have the children that find the resurrection eggs to sit down and listen to a story regarding Jesus' Resurrection. Have pictures of the items on a poster board and have the children hold them up during the story.

After the story, emphasize Jesus' sacrifice and have the children sacrifice their eggs, etc. with the knowledge that they will receive something better at the end of the event/day - just as Jesus knew that his sacrifice would bring something better in the end!

While they have free time, have some helpers divide the eggs evenly and put prizes which say "He is Risen" (you can purchase from the Oriental Trading Company or make your own) in their bags. Then have the children come back and receive their gifts. This makes a wonderful tool to further the knowledge of Jesus and Easter to our children.

If you don't want to do the Resurrection Eggs, you can type up some Bible scriptures regarding Jesus' Passion - then print, cut them out, put in plastic eggs and let the children who found them read their scriptures one by one.

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
