How it Works

Families discover that Jesus is alive in powerful ways…

As they arrive, families join others to form groups of 15-20, and along with their Travel Guide journey through the Destinations below. (You may want to create a sign-up sheet prior to your event.) At each Destination, they experience powerful moments that surrounded the death and resurrection of Jesus. These Bible-times experiences will be enjoyed by ALL ages.

The Triumphal Entry Station Photo: The view over Jesus' shoulder as families happily wave their Praise Palms for his entry into Jerusalem.

As everyone awaits Jesus arrival to Jerusalem, they learn about the different names of Jesus. Each person chooses one name that has meaning to them and adds it to a Praise Palm they can wave as Jesus arrives!

The Triumphal Entry

The Passover Meal Station Photo: A girl and her father sit on the floor wait for the host to pass them a food dish.

Families meet a servant who has prepared and served the Passover meal for Jesus and his followers—and they’ll taste a few foods from the Passover meal and learn why these are so important.

The Passover Meal

The Prison Station Photo: A crowd of guests sit and listen as Barabas talks to them from a jail cell.

Families enter a dark jail cell, meet a guard, and hear from Barabbas—a prisoner who knows he doesn’t deserve to be set free. But will Jesus—or Barabbas—be released?

The Prison

The Cross Station Photo: A crowd of guests listen as a Roman sodier speaks to them in a dimly lit room.

Guests meet a Roman soldier who wonders if he did the right thing by being a part of Jesus’ road to the cross. They’ll receive a small cross made from nails and quietly reflect as they hear nails being hammered into a cross.

The Cross

The Joyful Road Station Photo: A young girl smiles as she places her cross made of nails on a chin around her neck.

Guests meet an exuberant Cleopas, who was on the road to Emmaus when he met Jesus. Through Cleopas they’ll discover Jesus has conquered death and is alive today.

The Joyful Road

Roadside Diner Station Photo: A child uses apples, toothpicks, and grapes to fashion an edible ship.

After guests move through all the Destinations, they’ll gather for snacks and conversation with other families. This is also a great opportunity to take pictures and give each family a Foto Frame.
