Thursday Thirteen: 13 Easter Evangelism Ideas

Thursday Thirteen Meme

Easter is about Jesus’ resurrection and salvation. It’s a great time for Christians to participate in evangelism, witnessing, and community outreach.

Here are 13 Ideas for Evangelizing at Easter:

Easter Cards
Send out Easter Cards and Gospel Tracts to those on your Christmas card list.

Take Neighbor Kid to a Church Easter Event
Churches put on free Easter plays, Music Concerts, and Egg Hunts during this time of the year. It’s a good opportunity to invite a neighbor friend along.

Egg-vitations
The Sunday before Easter, give the children at church some plastic eggs filled with candy and an invitation to attend church on Easter. They can pass out the egg-vitations to their non-Christian friends and the neighbor kids.

Easter Conversations
Ask people what they will be doing for Easter. It’s a way to get a conversation going that may lead to talking about Christ. If they return the question, you will be able to explain what Easter means to you. You can even invite them to your Easter service.

Easter Bunny Dress Up
Dress up as the Easter Bunny. Go door-to-door passing out flyers that invite families to your Church Easter Egg hunt, concert, Easter service, or Spring Carnival.

Support Easter Outreaches with Your Money
There are a lot of Christian organizations trying to raise money for their outreach projects. Your financial contribution can help them reach more people this Easter or through out the whole year. Your church may be putting on a service or egg hunt that needs more funding. Here’s Life Inner City gives out Easter goodie bags filled Christian items. It is a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.

Promote Easter Evangelism
Make a flyer listing Easter Evangelism Ideas. Pass it out to your Christian friends and family. Try to get it included in the church bulletin.

Spring Flowers

Your church can deliver potted Spring flowers, Easter cards, and invitations to the neighbors that live near your church.

Ham Giveaway
Deliver frozen hams to families in lower income neighborhoods, compliments of your church.

Business Outreach
Visit the businesses around your church. Surprise the employees with a basket of cookies and Easter candy. You can say - “Happy Easter from your neighbors at ____ church. Include invitations in the basket.

Put up Posters
Campus Crusade for Christ has 2 Free Easter Posters. Print them and put them up in public places or on your bulletin board at work.

Pie Giveaway
Bake pies and give them away to your neighbors, along with an Easter Tract and an invitation to your church Easter service.

Babystepper said...

These are great ideas! I love that you've made Easter just as much an outreach as Christmas usually is.

I'll have to try some of these with my kids.

MamaArcher said...

those are some good idea, we have changed from calling it Easter to calling it Resurrection Sunday! It keeps us more focussed on Christ and the reason we celebrate and people will often ask us what we mean.

Really neat ideas! :)

What better time of year to share new life with people, when we're all yearning for the newness of Spring. The best new thing is the new life in Christ that we can experience here on this earth...
Have a wonderful Resurrection celebration!

There are some really great ideas here.
I love the idea of giving something with the reminder of Him.
Even more so now HE is the reason for the season!

Great ideas! (Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog too.) Our church is having a huge Easter egg hunt and we're inviting the whole community. Getting a bunny suit and walking the neighborhood is a great idea. I'm emailing our children's min. as soon as I get off here. :) I better watch it though, he may ask me to do it. :)

There are some really good ideas here. I personally like the 'Easter Conversations' one.

We also have a few of the Adventures in Odyssey CD's. I got the first CD set for my oldest several years ago for Easter after hearing about them from a friend. We really like them, too.

Those are some really good ideas. But they're useless if we don't put them to practice.

I'm so glad to see something other than eggs and bunnies.
