For many of us, Easter will look a lot different this year! While we won't be packing up the family for a special church service or hunting eggs with all of our loved ones, we'll still be celebrating the resurrection, however that may look!
Luke 24:6-7: "He is not here; he has risen!"
1. SET UP A SPRING TABLESCAPE
Just because you aren't hosting a large gathering this year, doesn't mean you can't set the table! Bring in backyard flowers, bust out the bunnies and iron your table linens. Decorating the house with Spring colors and easter eggs (hand-dyed of course!) is a great way to lift spirits. Be sure to tag us on in your decor photos on Instagram and Facebook so that we can celebrate with you!
2. DRESS UP FOR (VIRTUAL) CHURCH
Already purchased coordinating Easter outfits for the whole family? Us too! I have a feeling everyone is looking for an excuse to switch out of loungewear and dress up a bit. Before tuning into your virtual church service, get the family dressed and take that annual Easter photo. You won't regret it!
Ps. If you're looking for a service to attend this Sunday, you can join our Mercy Hill family for a live stream at 10:45 am! Click here for the details.
3. SPREAD CHEER WITH EASTER BASKETS
Easter baskets aren't just for the kiddos! This year, send a little #happymail to grandparents, friends, and neighbors with a special Easter basket! Give us a call and we'll help you put together the perfect grown-up Easter basket!
4. GIVE AN OFFERING
With so many nonprofits and churches struggling right now, giving a special Easter offering is a wonderful way to spread a little generosity during this difficult season!
5. MAKE A FAMILY EASTER RECIPE
What better way to feel connected with loved ones than through food. Facetime your Nana and beg her for that secret deviled egg recipe! She's sure to cave if you ask her to stick around while you make it together!
Instead of dwelling on all the ways this Easter will be different, start a new tradition and use this time at home for good. Who knows, you might make some of your favorite Easter memories yet!
