Easter at Missio
Easter is this Sunday and we're gathering together, inviting the neighborhood, and throwing a huge party to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. We don't party just because it's fun (though it is) but because in our joy, worship, and above in the hope displayed we point to Jesus and His victory over sin and death. We party because in our celebration the world gets a little taste of what it means to participate in the resurrection of Jesus.
There will be a lot of things going on this Sunday. Here is a guide walking through all the different events and activities of the day and also the different places where you can be involved.
– Missio Staff
Food & Coffee
Food Trucks! Throughout the day we will have a mix of local food trucks that will be providing food for our Party. We will have an assortment of food trucks that should meet most everyone’s dietary needs. We want everyone to eat their fill, so if you or anyone you know will have any difficulty at all paying for their meal please see a Missio Staff person and they will handle that immediately. Throughout the day we will also keep our air pots full of fresh brewed La Barba coffee.
Bring your favorite dessert to share this Easter. All of the desserts will go on a massive dessert table for everyone to share. It doesn’t need to be fancy, but if you want to get fancy then don’t let anyone hold you back. So bring a dessert on Easter Sunday to whatever service you choose to attend. Looking forward to celebrating.
Kids will be dividing into two age groups (ages 1-4 and 5-11) and hunting for eggs in different areas of the building. Head to the sanctuary 15 minutes after the 11 a.m. service ends. All kids who want to participate should meet in the sanctuary with parents to be provided with directions.
Jesus gives the church, the gift of baptism as a way to practice and proclaim the reality of our new citizenship in Him. If you consider yourself a follower of Jesus but haven’t been baptized, get baptized, and let’s celebrate the work of Jesus in your life on Easter. Baptism at Missio is open to anyone who wants to follow Jesus. If you are interested in being baptized email Kyle@missiodeislc.com.
The youth are going to meet in the youth room at 11am for donuts and sodas and then head down to the Easter service together, about 11:10. There’ll be a youth section partitioned off for our youth to sit together. During the 2nd set of songs, all the youth are going to help Rachelle set up for the Easter egg hunt, and help with the Easter egg hunt for the families and kids afterward. After that, there’ll be a youth activity going on during the party, complete with prizes.
This Easter Sunday we will have a free photo booth available for anyone and everyone. So dress up in your Sunday best or roll in wearing what you woke up in, either way, you can remember with a photo filled with all your favorite people.
