Many churches did not hold in-person Easter services last year, but this year we are expecting the majority to do so. While the priority of celebrating the resurrection remains, this Easter may feel differently for people. For some, it will be their first Sunday back in over a year. On this episode, we discuss a few ways to prepare for in-person Easter services and what you can expect from those who plan to attend. 

  • A portion of your congregation is targeting Easter as their first time back.
  • The nervousness of crowds will not go away by Easter, even with the vaccine.
  • Your church should welcome people with thoughtful hospitality.
  • Make a special emphasis and ask people to get reconnected to the church.
  • People will be more open to follow-up this Easter.
