Easter Evangelism Idea - Bake Cookies!

To celebrate Easter this week, why not bake some cookies with a friend?

When I was in high school, I desperately wanted someone to tell me about Jesus. I remember hoping that someone would invite me to youth group because it sounded so fun. There was also a group of Christians that went to lunch every week together. I would say things like "That sounds so fun!" or comment on how much I loved the restaurant where they were going, but nobody ever invited me. I even found this recipe for cookies that talk about Jesus and asked someone who I knew was a Christian to bake them with me hoping I could finally know what it was all about.

So why not make cookies with a friend this weekend? Not only do you get a yummy treat, but while the cookies are baking and cooling you have plenty of time to break through some sound barriers and share the gospel.

One great idea comes from Sasha at Lemonade Makin' Mama for Resurrection Cookies. These yummy cookies (the same ones I made with my friend in high school) are made with meringue and pecans. They bake overnight so are great for your family (a way to explain Jesus to your kids) or for a sleepover. If you don't have overnight you can bake them at 275 for 3 or 4 hours until they dry out.
Each step is associated with a Bible verse and describes the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Hop on over to her blog for the recipe!

Another great idea (especially for kids) are the Resurrection Rolls from Quit Eating Out. They rolls are so easy and are made with things you probably have on hand! Crescent rolls, marshmallows, butter and cinnamon sugar are all that it takes to make a powerful picture of Jesus and the empty tomb.

So head on over to Kim's blog and make these rolls! (I'm telling you these are AWESOME!)
