MACON, Ga. — While most people will be tuned into their Easter church services online, Wellspring Church in Warner Robins is challenging its members to be engaged.
"The church is just trying to keep middle Georgia engaged and just trying to reach out to middle Georgia and help the family stay engaged any way they can," says church member Beth Bryan.
Bryan is a mother of three kids and has gone to Wellspring Church for the last six years. She says they're adjusting their Easter traditions.
"We typically go to church, dress up, pretty Easter outfits, pretty big lunch with family at lunch time, and then do a big Easter egg hunt with family afterwards."
This year, their church is helping them deal with the at-home blues with an Easter challenge.
"Right after our Good Friday service at 8 p.m. this Friday, we'll have the first challenge go out. Once that challenge goes out, all you have to do is video your family doing that together. You'll post that on your Instagram page and tag us in it," says discipleship pastor Caleb Knight.
Knight says once you tag the church, send a DM to the Wellspring Church page to get the next challenge.
The first few families to complete all five challenges get a prize. The prizes include Easter baskets, bicycles, or a one year Disney Plus subscription.
Pastor Chuck Lewis says it's open to everyone. "People are just looking for something to do with the family. These are great activities to be involved in."
Bryan says her children have their sights set on the Easter baskets.
Wellspring Church is encouraging members to do communion from home for Good Friday and will be hosting a drive-in service on Easter morning.
