Easter Egg Hunt
This Easter egg hunt is designed for families and churches to explore the ONE THOUSAND DAYS OF LOVE campaign. Adding the nine Gifts that Nurture Children with facts and actions to your Easter eggs is sure to inspire storytelling, song, and learning for children of all ages. Download and print the cards to add to your eggs or create a matching game.
Let’s Talk: Family Conversation Starters on Gifts and Psalms are based on the Gifts That Nurture Children from the ONE THOUSAND DAYS OF LOVE Campaign. These cards can be used at any time of the year to help generate meaningful interactions. We’ve created simple instructions for how you can utilize these cards with your family over the six weeks of Eastertide as well. Let’s Talk cards are composed to be open-ended, to create a time of storytelling and sharing. The possibilities for engaging conversations are endless! Download the cards and instructions here.
Our worship offerings include assets for every aspect of your faith life. We have resources for a full service, including the Liturgy of the Word and Holy Eucharist, A Children’s Chapel Service, and prayers for the Daily Office.
