“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.
Interactive Prayer Station #2: Transforming Beginnings
Materials: String, Craft Sticks, Pipe Cleaners
I tied a butterfly macrame knot at one end of the string. You can find instructions for all different designs on youtube.
I adapted this from a lesson I found on Danielle’s Place.
Interactive Prayer Station #3: Transforming Blessings
Materials: Paper, Sharpies, Cupcake Liners, Clothes Pins, Tape
I cut out butterfly shapes and then a slit in the middle so that it can clip onto edges.
