A-Tisket, A-Tasket, Delivering Easter Baskets

We have about 200 kids on campus. They will each get an Easter “basket” – okay, nest in a bowl – this weekend.

It’s a special gift to let them know someone cares and is thinking of them – just a small reminder of the sweet, free gift that Jesus gave us when He paid the penalty for our disobedience and died on the cross. The sweet part is knowing He didn’t stay in the tomb but came back to life on the third day, just as He said He would.

Each basket contains some candy, the verse below and an invitation to Real Talk, our on-campus worship service that includes Bible-based talks (sermons), praise music and prayer.

 “This is love: it is not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son as the sacrifice that deals with our sins.” - 1 John 4:10
