How To Celebrate Easter in Place

Easter in Place

This year we are facing a completely different Easter than any other year in our lives. I’ve celebrated different Easters but not like this… everyone in their own homes.

I am so grateful for the ability to gather together electronically. But you may say, “It won’t be the same”. However, this morning I happened upon a shared video of chapel service at my Alma Mater (Asbury University). The chaplains were still having chapel for the students even though they were spread all across the nation.

One chaplain noted that in a certain language the word “crisis” not only means impending trouble but “opportunity”. We have an opportunity to make something wonderful of this time. We can create new traditions and memorable moments together in our little families right in our living room.

Celebrate Easter

Sure we may not have new dresses or egg hunts and candy, but maybe, just maybe, or attention will turn to the hope of Easter. The Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life. That He can restore hope and joy to our lives that may have been missing for a long long time.

Below I share several links to other suggestions for celebrating in place this Easter. But before that, I share this prayer from Romans 15:13…

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you believe so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Participate in Easter Worship “in Place”

If you would like a small church effect, I invite you to “attend” one of our services on Facebook. Godd there now and “LIKE” us and you should get notified when they go live.

If you would prefer a larger church experience, I suggest Greg Laurie’s Church which also happens to also be called Harvest Church.

  1. Good ideas for celebrating at home. He is still our Lord, risen for us! And, yes, I pray that our hearts would be open to hear His Word in fresh new ways. Blessings to you this Easter Week!

  2. Mandy – Thank you for sharing with Grace & Truth Link-Up. I loved what you had to say. I had no idea, crises could mean impending trouble and opportunity. I love it. Happy Easter to you. Maree

  3. Mandy, thank you for these excellent ideas. This is for sure going to be a different kind of Easter than what we are used to. But the true meaning of Easter has not changed. So thankful for an unchanging God!!!

    Thanks for linking up at InstaEncouragements!

  4. I’m excited to hear all the stories about what God has done next week. I heard that Greg Laurie’s church had over 1.3 million people join their multiple streaming platforms AND over 11,000 made a profession of faith! How awesome is that!
