The Awesome Kids from Christchurch North Methodist explored the Easter Story using Resurrection Eggs - each plastic egg contained a symbol from the Easter story. We decorated shortbread biscuits (egg and heart shaped) with icing and sprinkles, and had an easter egg hunt. Our youth media team made a short video which you can watch on the previous post.
After the service we enjoyed an all-age scavenger/egg hunt. In groups we searched for members of the congregation who had the items we needed to collect. Some were easy to find, but others were very good at hiding and led teams on a chase around the garden! We looked for the clues in the bible verses we were given and the final clue led us to the person who had the items representing the empty tomb - hollow chocolate eggs!
He is Risen!
He is Risen indeed!
