aT-HOME EASTER ACTIVITIES

We are the Church, no matter where we meet. Join us this Easter season, as we share the love of Christ with our neighbors, families, friends, and the St. Paul's congregation.

  • draw & display

    Share your Easter season drawings. Video invitation from Pastor: watch here


    A fun and creative way to witness to your neighborhood is to color a picture and place it in a prominent window in your house, condo, or apartment. In fact, why not create several pictures? Perhaps your grandchildren could draw pictures for you to display. Perhaps you could draw and color pictures for friends and relatives to display at their homes. Here are some suggestions:

    • Maundy Thursday – Communion chalice and host; grapes and bread

    • Good Friday – Cross or crucifix

    • Easter – Empty tomb; the risen Christ with the two men on the road to Emmaus; the risen Christ with the disciples in the upper room

    • Children's Bible story coloring pages: Holy Week and Easter themed: print here
    • Adult coloring pages: print here
  • share photos

    Smile! Help us build our Easter season online photo album. 


    We encourage households to take a picture of themselves holding their drawing(s) and e-mail to church@stpaulsdesperes.org (horizontal photos are ideal). We look forward to sharing them here, and on Facebook and Instagram. Pastor Thomas and Pastor Thomson will share photos and drawing during their Ministry Minute devotions.
