Here’s what participants said about Easter Holytext in 2017:
“Beyond the creativity was another function – it kept drawing my mind back to the event we were supposed to be remembering instead of the usual cares of the day.”
“I will definitely be recommending this to everyone I know! It’s a great way to share the good news”
“I looked forward to receiving them and couldn’t wait to read them aloud to my family”
Participants this year will also have the opportunity to order a FREE copy of the Gospel of Mark to help them understand the significance of Easter and who Jesus is. It’s also a wonderful resource to share or pass on to a friend.
This free offer will come at the end of the Easter Holytext campaign.
