Easter Family Festival, April 2019

We hosted our second annual Easter Family Festival at TMC on Sunday afternoon April 14. The lively gathering of about 12 children plus their moms and dads generated lots of happy noise. We celebrated Resurrection Sunday with singing, crafts, cupcakes, Easter baskets, and best of all were able to share the Bible story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Easter shows up in Japan in commercial decorations and food, but the resurrection meaning is missing.

One of our TMC members is a mom who lives in the area and has invited a number of her friends to TMC’s children’s events. As a result, two families came to TMC for the first time at Easter. One dad had never entered a church building. We rent the entire first floor of a business building so TMC does not look like what many Japanese imagine a church building to be. Our desire is for these kinds of Japanese people to find Christ through TMC and its people.
