Email Script Samples

Kids’ Ministry Easter Resources

We want to bless your entire church with this kit!  That’s why this year, we’ve included resources for your kids’ ministry team:

  • We have reviews and tips on using Easter-specific kids curriculum options, ranging from free programs like those offered from Life.Church, as well as paid options like Hillsong BIG.  
  • We’ve also included kid-specific follow-up ideas, so that your kids’ department can become an integral part of bringing families back after Easter is over.

Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day in the main follow-up event after Easter.  In this download, we’ve provided inspiration and practical tips for making it awesome. There are gift and giveaway ideas, email scripts, benevolence ideas, a message guide, and more!

Offering Talks

Offering talks during Easter can be tricky because you can have so many guests in the room. We’ve included some guiding principles and example scripts to help this service element enhance the experience, rather than take from it. 

Photo Booth Guide

Photo booths are a fun way to add value and promote your events/services.  We’ve compiled tips to make yours the best it can be.  In fact, you don’t even have to download the kit to read this guide!  It’s available year-round on our website.

Sermon Outlines

We’ve compiled 10+ sermon outlines to inspire you as you prepare your Easter message, plus links to the inspirational sermon outlines we featured in last year’s kit.

Social Media Graphics & Examples

Get the word out on social media using our social media graphics, video scripts for filming an invite video, sample social media posts, and example service photos.

Video Script Samples

We’ve compiled a collection of video scripts that you can use to market Easter on social and in your service.
