As we joined the congregation early last Easter morning, our flip flops smacked the aged wooden floor loudly.
My children, still sporting pajamas and raging bedheads, had already descended upon the donut holes and hot chocolate. They giggled wildly at their mutual good fortune of extra sugar before proper breakfasts. The pianist played a traditional hymn softly in the background. All the assembled heads turned at once to take in our ragtag crew, and then someone spoke.
“Happy Easter!” my neighbor said, with a smile.
“Happy Easter!” we replied. The church was our community pool deck. The congregation consisted of our friends and neighbors. Our Easter finery was “come as you are.” The sun rose over our homes’ rooftops, while Blossom, the neighborhood cat, stretched out under a picnic table bench serving as a pew.
My neighborhood Bible study organized a sunrise Easter gathering last year. Our leaders kept it very simple, asking ladies in the Bible study for help. The result was an informal, joyful way to start a day of celebration of the risen Christ.
If you want to try organizing an event like this in your neighborhood, think about these simple steps.
