Journey to the Cross Easter Program

From The Creators

Journey to the Cross Logo Experience the true meaning of Easter like never before! Journey to the Cross is a unique event designed to give your church families and first-time guests an amazing experience. Journey to the Cross offers a multisensory, captivating event for your church families to experience together. Just imagine guiding your guests through a journey that involves the excitement of Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem…the pain of sin in our lives…the healing Jesus offers us…the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross…and finally, the celebration of his resurrection!

At Journey to the Cross, everyone will walk away feeling personally and spiritually impacted—including all the volunteers who staff the event and the stations, distribute keepsakes, welcome families, and build relationships. Your volunteers will know they also shared Jesus' love!

About the Experience

 Journey to the Cross is truly an extraordinary Easter experience! Here’s a quick look at what families and guests will experience when they visit Journey to the Cross…

About the Experience - Picture of girls

The Entryway and Registration Station

As families enter your building, they’ll step out of their ordinary lives to walk hand-in-hand with Jesus on the road to his resurrection. Families or groups will give their contact information for follow-up so you can be certain to connect with guests who’ve come to check out Journey—and maybe your church!


Journey to the Cross Stations

Kids and their families experience the most amazing and thought-provoking Easter journey ever as they walk through the five stations. They’ll experience the excitement surrounding Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, the pain and discomfort of sin in our lives, the healing and forgiveness Jesus offered us, the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, and the celebration of his resurrection.

Families with school-age children will walk together from station to station, experiencing unique activities designed to make them think and provide opportunities for parents to talk about their faith with their children. Note: Because the topics of the stations can be challenging for preschoolers, we’ve included an entire experience just for preschoolers they can enjoy while parents and older children journey to the cross.


Collector Cards and Deeper Experiences

Guests get one beautiful Collector Card at every station, for a total set of five. Each Collector Card expresses Jesus’ love for us in a unique way and gives guests instructions for each experience.


Journey Lounge

Here’s where families can regroup in a cozy corner you’ve set up as a coffee and snack station, which is perfect for families picking up their preschoolers or for guests who’d like to know more about your church. This station is staffed by your friendly church members who can let guests know about all the things your church offers families.

7. How many hours will it take after the event?

You'll have a significant amount of tear-down, storing, and cleanup, so plan for a few hours, again divided among capable volunteers.
