  • Prayer: pray for those who will come and hear the message of Jesus.
  • Share: We need adults and teens who can share the story of Easter with the use of Story Stones. (very simple preparation.)
  • Prepare: We have several items that will need to be prepared ahead of time including making the story stones, snacks, etc.
  • Be there: We need people to be there on the day of the Easter Egg Outreach to greet , mingle, help serve snacks, set up and clean up.
