Churches across the United States will now be able to present the Easter story in a new, impactful way that features realistic videos, live dramas and beautiful music – thanks to a new program provided by Outreach Inc. a southern California based church marketing and publishing company, and The Thorn Live a Colorado-based theatrical company.

Over the last 15 years, thousands of people have witnessed The Thorn Live, a spectacular dramatic presentation of the story of the cross that has toured several cities around the United States. Complete with music, acting, dance, martial arts, gymnastics, pyrotechnics, video, and more, The Thorn Live has enabled audiences across the country to experience Easter in a new way.

Now this exclusive licensed content from “The Thorn Live” production is available for churches to use, creating a worship experience unlike any other Easter service. The Thorn Easter Experience Church Kit allows a church of any size to present the greatest story ever told in a unique and powerful way.

With The Thorn Easter Experience Church Kit, any church can tailor the resources to fit their Easter Sunday needs – use everything for a full dramatic event, or just a few pieces – no matter how the church incorporates The Thorn Easter Experience into a service, attendees will experience the power and compassion of Jesus’ life, the pain of his crucifixion, and the triumph of his resurrection.

“Easter is a perfect opportunity to invite friends, neighbors, and co-workers to church. The Thorn Easter Experience is a one-of-a-kind service that will inspire guests and encourage them to respond to the fresh presentation and biblical accounts.” said Eric Abel, VP of Marketing at Outreach, Inc.

“By partnering with the Thorn…we have been able to present the greatest story ever told with a level of excellence that we would have never been able to do alone. What I love most about The Thorn is that it demands a response. It isn’t possible to sit through a Thorn production without contemplating God’s deep love for you, and responding to that love.”- Josh Surratt, Seacoast Church

Outreach Inc. is excited to partner with The Thorn Live and offer this extraordinary production to the sight and sound generation and hope that many will come to see Easter in a whole new way.
