Women's Ministry Theme

Spiritual Application

Celebrating the resurrection of our Savior.

This is basically a generic Easter theme. 

There are so many directions you can go for Easter, depending on what part of the Easter story you want to concentrate on. 

Theme Verse Suggestions

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.  Matthew 28:6

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.  John 11:25

Devotional/Lesson Suggestions

And The Women Also by Julia

The Easter Story can be found in the following passages.

  • Matthew 28
  • Mark 16
  • Luke 24
  • John 20
  • Please note that to truly cover and study the Easter Story, you need to see all that led up to the resurrection, etc. which is covered throughout the gospels.
  • These passages basically represent the "resurrection" part of the story.

Alternative Theme Titles

See the Easter Theme Topic List.


Color:  spring colors

Decorate using lots of ladybugs


Wheat Grasses

Baskets of Spring Flowers

Easter Bonnets and Gloves

Anything that says "spring".

Lilies (Artificial/silk ones are suggested for tables where people will be sitting or eating.  Real lilies are one of the flowers that cause the most allergic reactions!) 


Discussion Starter:

Ask everyone to share an Easter tradition they grew up with or that they do now with their own family.

Easter Egg Hunt Ideas:

Fill plastic Easter eggs with verses in them that cover the Easter Story. 

Have your ladies find them, then allow everyone to read their verses. 

You can hide one item from the Easter Story Eggs (on my blog) in individual eggs if you want and put the coordinating verse with each.

Eggs can represent new life.  Hide 5 or 6 plastic Easter eggs for your ladies to find. 

Those who find them must share their story of their salvation and how Christ gave them "new life".
