This article is part of the Family Faith Formation Toolkit - a collection of resources for equipping ministry leaders, parents, and caregivers with family faith practices and resources, brought to you by Faith Formation Ministries.

In the following links you’ll find creative resources and practices for Easter to use both in community and at home. These ideas can be seamlessly woven into existing church programs and into family life.

Easter: In Community

One way to be intentional about weaving family faith nurture into all you do as a community is by providing resources that connect church and home to people of all ages.

  • We love these ideas from the Methodist Church for Holy Week Devotions for Families and Singles because they include suggestions for all ages. Use them as inspiration for creating take-home devotions that will work in your church context.

  • Consider inviting a senior’s group to bless families with young children at your church by making and giving them Holy Week in a Box sets or delivering to their home the tools for a Resurrection Garden. Another idea: Offer an intergenerational event in which you make such gifts together.

  • One of our favorite blogs is Worshiping with Children by author and Christian educator Carolyn Brown. Open the Topical Index on her site to access a multitude of ideas for forming faith in community during Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.

  • This Holy Week Flag Art Project uses inexpensive supplies to created colorful, symbolic artwork as the stories of Holy Week are read. Consider making this activity an intergenerational experience and displaying the results on Easter morning for the whole community to enjoy.

Easter: At Home
