5 Ideas To Connect With Neighbors At Easter


Resurrection Sunday, also known as Easter, is the foundation of the Christian faith. This holiday is on many public calendars and thought of or celebrated in some sort of fashion by many cultures, giving people a common touchpoint to connect.

We have found that neighbors are most open to spiritual conversations during the seasons of Christmas and Easter.

Here are a few ideas to help you connect with neighbors during the Easter season.

1. Invite! Many who do not typically go to church will say “yes” to an invitation to Easter Sunday Service. Ask a neighbor to join you. Many churches provide small invitations with gathering times for you to hand out or make your own. 

2. Host a potluck lunch on Easter. As a mom of 2 small children, I don’t have the capacity (or want!) to cook for a large crowd, but I can buy a honey baked ham and open my home! Our neighborhood Easter potluck has become a tradition we all look forward to. It’s casual, everyone brings something, and I often use paper plates. It’s not about the fancy meal, it’s about being together and building community. 

3. Organize a children’s egg hunt. At the end, use the “Resurrection Eggs” to share the easter story. Neighbors are happy to bring their own stuffed eggs too. We usually do 20 eggs per kid and the adults or older teens hide the eggs quickly while the kids hang inside.children chalk walk

4. Write a note and give a small gift, like an Easter lily or loaf of bread saying, “Thanking God today for the gift of Easter and YOU. I’m so glad you’re my neighbor!”

5. "Chalk the walk” is a fun way to engage the whole family and neighborhood in celebrating Easter. Get your chalk, some tape and go to town. My girls love drawing mosaic crosses, flowers etc. Bible verses would be great encouragement to those who pass your house! 

We hope these ideas spark your creativity and desire to reach the neighbors around you. May Christ’s love flow through us this Easter!

What's the big deal about a neighbor Bible study group?

A neighbor Bible study group brings together a wide range of seekers and Christ-followers to study, discuss, and encourage one another toward life application of God’s Word. This blending of spiritual maturity levels creates a dynamic, life-transforming community. Friendships are formed, and group members are equipped to minister to others where they do life.
