Easter is a time of renewal, rebirth, and rejoicing. It’s a time when families and friends come together, attend church sermons, and reinvigorate their spirits. Unlike the solemn Good Friday ceremonies that precede it, Easter is a celebratory moment in time.
So why not make it a real celebration? Many churches have discovered that enlivening their Easter celebration increases the happiness level of their congregation and can even increase attendance too. Your experts at Flutter FETTI® give you 5 of the best ways to energize your church’s Easter celebration:
1. End Your Church Sermon or Service with Confetti
Your sermon or service is the most important moment of Easter when you give your congregants a message of hope. If you really want to inspire, then create a strong speech, build up to a dramatic ending, get everyone excited, and unleash confetti upon the whole congregation. You can use Mega Blaster Confetti Launchers to shoot off tissue FETTI and watch everyone look up skyward in amazement as the confetti floats and flutters to the floor. It’s been done at many churches before and has received huge accolades for its stimulating effect!
2. Host An Easter Egg Hunt
The egg is often thought of as a symbol of rebirth, one of the main messages of Easter. Take advantage of your church lawn or indoor space to host an Easter egg hunt. Rather than having kids do it at home by themselves, let them run around with all their friends and neighbors. The Easter egg hunt brings your congregation together by creating a more social atmosphere and communal event. Fill the eggs with chocolate so everyone can take home a few sweet treats too.
3. Offer A Singing Surprise
The best way to rejoice is with an uplifting song. Ask your choir to sing a joyous, upbeat song that your congregants haven’t heard before and would never expect (maybe not as dramatic as the songs from Whoopi Goldberg’s Sister Act, but you get the point). Have choir members hide 6” Flutter Flickers in their robes and as the surprise song comes to a close, have them flick the confetti into the audience. It’s a beautiful way to end a beautiful day of rejoicing!
4. Put On A Play
You don’t need to attend a Broadway show to see a quality live-action drama. Have your church put on a performance about Easter to entertain your congregants and provide a more creative way to project your message. Plus, it helps teach the children (the next generation) about the important messages behind the holiday – it’s not just about a bunny and chocolate after all! Give your play a perfect ending by letting the kids shoot off custom-colored 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks and shower the whole crowd, or at least the few first pews, in colorful confetti!
5. Host A Bake Sale or Picnic
Although Easter’s date varies each year, one thing is for certain – it happens during the spring when the weather is finally getting nicer. Take advantage of the warmth and sunshine to host an outdoor picnic or bake sale. You can charge people a small price for the picnic if catered or ask congregants to make the food and bring it for a potluck. As for the bake sale, proceeds can go towards the church or to a local charity. It’s up to you! And of course, if your church is in one of the colder northern climes, you can always play it safe and host the bake sale or picnic inside the church or under a tent. It’s less about the sunshine anyway and more about bringing people together during the holiday! Happy Easter!
