“Unless I see the nail marks in his hands, put my finger in the wounds left by the nails, and put my hand into his side, I won’t believe.” (John 20.25)
Below are ideas for interactive prayer stations focusing on themes surrounding Christ’s resurrection, doubting Thomas, and mission. We wanted to combine an invitation to consider people to participate in the mission and ministry work of the church and the season of Easter. These stations touched on all the senses as the resurrection is a full sensory experience. Worshippers were invited to stay in the pews as well as they HEAR the music being played.
