Mission Service Activity: April
From Good to Better to Best
Christ has taken us from “damned” to “saved.” It doesn’t get any better than that! The Holy Week\Easter story can seem fragmented when it is spread out over several weeks. The Easter joy doesn’t always carry over after Easter Sunday. Plan a Victory Party to be held two or three weeks after Easter. Gather together in person, virtually, or celebrate in your homes at a common time.
There are some wonderful free resources available through LWML that can serve to set the stage ahead of the Victory Party or remind us of Christ’s Victory if used after the Victory Party. Check them out here.
Possible Victory Party plan:
- Begin with the prayer listed below.
- Sing a favorite Easter hymn or “Jesus Loves Me.”
- Read Matthew 28, Mark 16, Luke 24, and/or John 20:1–23.
- Make a list of blessings we receive because of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
- Shout: “Hallelujah! Christ is Risen!”
- Closing prayer: But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).
- Serve refreshments.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).

Activities as We Stay-At-Home
Check with local nursing homes to see if they can use handmade fabric masks for their staff to wear as a measure of protection for the residents they serve. While we realize that the fabric masks are not surgical/medical grade and cannot be used as Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for health care workers, perhaps there are people in care facilities who can use them.
