EBVAT (Easter-Bible-Verse-A-Thon)

Here’s an excerpt from this Easter Preparation and World Missions Fundraising Idea:

“The following idea was used to help the children in our KidsQuest program begin to help the children prepare for Easter, and to grow in their understanding of what Christ has done for them. We also wanted to provide them with an opportunity to support for those who are sharing Christ’s love in other countries around the world. EBVAT is the result and can be adapted and altered to suit your local situation. The funds raised by EBVAT were given to The Salvation Army’s World Mission Fund. On Easter Sunday all of our KidsQuest (Sunday school) children recited the verses for our adult congregation.” Click on the download to find out how to put this program idea together at your church.

Looking for new song material this Easter? The following suggestions have been tested out on my own congregation. Many of them have proved to be emotionally moving, immensely popular, and fairly easy to learn. Those songs marked with asterisks are well-known, well-loved, and well-sung in my own corps situation. Some are already available in brass band congregational accompaniments. So don’t shy away from discovering some new awesome music that will give yourself new ways of praising God this Easter. “Let us sing a new song unto the Lord!”
