†=♥ is symbolic of the true meaning of Easter: Jesus. Every year as a church we go out into our cities to proclaim the Gospel.
We want to remind our cities of “The greatest Love of all…” We want to start a revolution of LOVE.
Starting a revolution that will impact our cities will require deliberate action from each one of us.
We’ve got 5 ideas to get you started:
1. INVITE CARDS
Grab some invite cards at church on a Sunday. Go out into your city/community and do something to special for someone. The idea is to make someone’s day, a random act of kindness goes a long way in opening someone’s heart to an invitation to church. Get creative.
2. SOCIAL MEDIA
Download the Hillsong App – this year we’ve added a feature that allows you to stamp †=♥ across your own images for social media. Remember to tag your photos #CrossEqualsLove and also tag @HillsongSAfrica.
3. MASS ACTION
We would like to make some waves with the †=♥ message, we want our cities to take note and for every single person to know about the love of Jesus. So gather your connect group or age-group ministry you are a part of and do something big in your city.
4. CHALK MURALS
During the weeks leading up to Easter, let’s chalk †=♥ on the footpaths and roads across our cities. Let’s make this message known to every person in our city.
5. SHARE THE LOVE
You can start by sharing this blog with your someone. Using social media we can have a far reaching impact on the people in our cities. Make sure you share your †=♥ photos, murals, and group activities online.
Let’s keep finding creative ways to do good & share this message of love with those we meet every day.
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15 [ESV]
Easter is coming!
