As we prepare for another Lent & Easter season during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen just how creative church leaders have been as you have faithfully reached out and connected with families in your congregations. We’ve also started noticing posts in many Facebook Groups asking for ideas for Lent-at-Home kits or Lent-in-a-box resources for families.
We want to help you design your Lenten and Easter kits with resources that are high-quality, digital, and easy to distribute.
We have a vast library of resources, and we’ve picked out some of our favorites for you.

*A note about physical coloring posters: Our coloring posters have been fantastic opportunities to gather together in community with people of all ages sitting around a table coloring together. That is obviously not possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, but we’ve seen churches come up with some innovative and creative solutions.
Some churches have set up coloring stations outdoors and invited people to come in shifts to color a poster together. Others have purchased our high-quality physical coloring posters, cut them up and distributed them to families and church members, and then put the pieces back together to create a beautiful art display.
Another option would be to host an online discussion using one of the devotional guides and the coloring pages. Allow participants to color and reflect during the week, and then gather together online to go through the devotional guide and share their reflections.
Aside from the physical coloring posters (which also have digital options available), all of these resources are digital and can be purchased and easily printed and distributed to families and church members, but could also be emailed to people for easy distribution.
