Easter in a Nut Shell

This is a great family service sermon outline cleverly using the capital E on the front of Easter. With each point you rotate the E to create a new word. Easter – Waster – Master.The font doesn’t allow me to rotate the E here but you can get the idea. You can use it on PowerPoint or as simple as having aster in large lettering on a overhead projector film paper with an extra large E cut out so that you can place it in front of the word and rotate it when needed. The idea creates the shell for what can be a dynamic easter family service using all that’s available, puppets illusions and stories etc. All the best. This has a great wow factor (simple but effective). Easter was when the Waster found out who the Master truly was! by Bonnie

Hollow Easter Bunny – Object Lesson

Object: A hollow chocolate Easter bunny

How many of you have seen these chocolate rabbits in the stores lately? They seem to be everywhere this time of year, don’t they? You know, nowadays it seems like the world wants to put the focus of Easter on the rabbits, the candy, the colorful eggs. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with any of those things. But it’s also important that we don’t let them distract us from the real meaning of Easter. One thing these rabbits do remind me of. If you let these become the focus of your Easter….
(break open the chocolate rabbit)
it will leave you just like this rabbit. It looks ok on the outside, but when you look inside you find that it’s just…hollow. Don’t let Easter have a hollow meaning for you. Remember Christ is the true meaning of Easter, and He is able to completely fill your heart.

Easter / Salvation Object Lesson

Needed: 2 poster board hearts of identical size (one white, one of a darker color), clear tape. Darker heart should be damaged in some way to represent a sinful heart–torn in places or crumpled up and then straightened back out

I have in my hand a terrible looking heart! (Show damaged heart.) It’s had a lot of damage. This heart represents each of our natural hearts that we are born with. You see, we are all born with the desire to sin. Sin keeps us from being able to know God personally as our best friend and as our perfect father. I’m sure (more…)
