Each year, Easter Sunday is an important day for our church. It’s a time for us to remember and celebrate the gift of Jesus.
The importance of Easter
Yes, Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, but Easter is when we remember the sacrifice, the ultimate gift, his life.
Christ innocently died a criminal’s death so that we could be free but it doesn’t stop there. He didn’t stay dead. No, he rose again, and it’s that conquering over death that brings us together each Easter in celebration.
Because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, we no longer need to fear death. We know that, if we only believe, we can spend eternity in Heaven with our Lord.
As believers, it’s often hard to realize that some people have no clue about this sacrifice or what it means to their future. But that’s why we’re here at MotelChurch. So that other people can hear the truth and believe.
That’s why Easter is so important to us.
Easter Sundays at MotelChurch
Each Easter we bring a delicious brunch, celebration service, face painting and Easter egg hunt to our motels. It’s more than bunnies and eggs; we’re celebrating the resurrection of our Savior. Our entire celebration points the way to him.
Help us bring the miracle of Easter to motels
We can’t pull off this celebration without you, our fellow volunteers. Your investment in Easter 2016 will bring Christ to individuals and families living without hope, and a morning of happiness to kids living in rundown motels.
This year we have two ways to help impact families at Easter:
Something cool happened this year. One remarkable individual already provided 1,000 Easter eggs for our children. How neat is that?
We still need prizes to go in each egg, generally a new toy worth less than $10. It’s a small gift that brings joy to a child who rarely experiences such fun. Each year we do the egg hunt, the smiles on their faces become infectious. You always catch their joy on Easter because everyone is in high spirits.
If you could donate any amount toward Easter 2016, your generous donation will help provide a fun time for children suffering in weekly motels.
We’ve set up an Easter giving page for your convenience. So, if you’re able to give any amount, you can head over here and securely give your gift.
Volunteer for our Easter Celebration
An extra special celebration needs extra special volunteers to pull it off. When you volunteer to serve Easter Sunday, you’re bringing the hope of Christ’s resurrection right to the motels and shining the way to Heaven.
We need as many volunteers as we can get to help make this the best Easter celebration we’ve had at MotelChurch. So, if you’re available Easter weekend, we could use your help.
You can bring friends, family, your small group, or even co-workers. It’s even a perfect time to bring your non-believer friends because you can introduce them to the miracle of Easter too.
Just like every weekend at MotelChurch, your children are welcome to join you in serving at Easter 2016. Is there a better way to teach them about helping those in need?
Easter 2016 is going to be wonderful celebration of our Savior, and the Easter Planning Team is pumped to have you join us.
Whether you’re giving a financial gift to help bring joy to a child or you’re joining us out at a motel on Easter Sunday, we can’t do it without you. You’re all part of this celebration of our Savior, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
