A big part of the event preparation is the promotion. I sure don't want any of the church families, or those from the community, to respond later that they didn't know we'd be doing a special Easter event, or an Easter Egg Hunt, or anything else planned to resonate with families and remind others of the real Easter message. And, yes, I hope that I've promoted our Easter events within the community. But sometimes, we forget to be just as conscientious in reminding the kids and families of our church about all that's been organised.
Promote your event with a vibrant powerpoint slide
So.. if you're still looking for other ways to highlight your events, the easiest way is with a FREE powerpoint slide. You can download and include them in your kidmin program. You can insert them in the announcements for the entire church. Two of the slides can be used on the day to announce the imminent start of the Easter Egg Hunt. And yes, they can easily be customised with your own details. Files for designs #1,2 & 4 can be found below. The link to the two other files can be found by clicking on the images. They can be used in other ways, too.
If you need an image for your social media pages, then open the powerpoint file. Make any wording alterations you need, relevant to your events. Then, along the top of your Powerpoint program you'll find the editing tools on the right. (Find- Replace-Select) Click on Select and choose Select All. Then right-click on the slide and choose 'Save the image.' and you'll have an image that can be uploaded along with your other information to your social media pages.
Easter postcards or flyers
In the same way you can use the slide image as the front of a flyer or card with your other information added to the reverse and hand them out as a last-minute reminder to families.
So... now you can relax, happy in the knowledge that everything is in place ready for Easter.
