Every Easter Sunday after church all in attendance gather on the front lawn and each person is given a helium-filled balloon. The balloons each have a card attached signed by a church member. At the signal from the Pastor (“The Lord is risen!” “The Lord is risen indeed!”) everyone releases their balloons and they float skyward. The cards have a place for the people who find them to fill in their names and location and to mail them back to the church. There are usual between 15 and 20 postcards returned, sometimes from as far away as New York and Pennsylvania.
