Interactive Prayer Stations on Easter & Ascension (Acts 1)

“Galileans, why are you standing here, looking toward heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way that you saw him go into heaven.” (Acts 1.11)

Below are ideas for interactive prayer stations focusing on themes surrounding Christ’s resurrection and ascension. You can view more photos here.

For Easter, I decorated the sanctuary by hanging cut out letters of scripture quotes from the Good Friday and Easter story.

Interactive Prayer Station #1: Transforming Journey

Materials: Pasta (Pastina, Shell, Bow Tie, Rotini), votive candle holders, Tea Light Candles

I bought votive candles on sale for a cheap price. Sometimes hobby or fabric stores have them on sale or you can find them at a dollar store.

I cut out butterfly shapes and then a slit in the middle so that it can clip onto edges.
