Free Christ-Centered Easter Play for Church Outreach or Families

Hi ladies! Looking for an outreach for this year on Resurrection Day?

Here’s the Christ-Centered Easter play I promised you a couple days ago. 😊

Also, I added a free, printable list of Bible passages that go with each act.

Scroll to bottom to find your free copy of “He’s not here, He is Risen” Christ-centered play!

Available in English or Spanish!

What is it about?

A Christ-centered Easter drama from the point of view of the women who were with Jesus throughout His ministry.

They also witnessed His gruesome crucifixion & death.

This small group of common yet devoted women gathered at the tomb of their Savior & were the first to hear those glorious words:

“He is not here, but is risen!”

Luke 24:6 (NKJV)

Back in 2020 I, along with my friend and sister-in-Christ, Karla Gonbaq 💜, wrote this 3-Act drama.

Just another example of how we need one another in the body of Christ to complete His good works.

I was so stuck on Act 3. I only had pieces and parts that didn’t flow together. Oh, and no beginning.

We had already begun rehearsals on the first two acts, so I was starting to stress. What’s a play without an ending??

I prayed and asked the Lord for help. I felt like He was directing me to Karla.

So I asked for her help.

We sat down at her kitchen table with our Bibles and in one evening we had it written. That’s when I realized I couldn’t complete it because God had given that part to Karla, not me.

Ladies, we need one another to do the work the Lord has called us to do.

We aren’t meant to try and do it alone.

Also various ladies, as well as my husband, helped with editing both the English and Spanish versions and I’m so thankful for them!

When we serve together the results are so much more beautiful than if we seek to do it all ourselves.

In 2020, we had a group practicing in Spanish and one in English as well.

My heart wells up with such wonderful memories rehearsing this play.

We cried together, we laughed together & we rejoiced together, amazed yet again by the love and power of God. 💕💕💕

Who do you need?

For this play you will need:

  • 5 Women
  • 2 Men

Characters (Women):

  • Mary, the mother of Jesus
  • Mary Magdalene
  • Joanna, the wife of Chuza
  • Salome
  • Flavia (a fictitious character, a Roman servant in Herod’s palace [non-believer])

Characters (Men)—2 Disciples on the Road to Emmaus.

  • Cleophas
  • 2nd Disciple

How to Use it:

The sky’s really the limit.

Pray and ask God what’s the best for where you live.

In Kentucky, we were practicing to use it outdoors as an outreach in a local mobile home park.

The plan was to have a kids’ carnival with Resurrection-themed games in the morning. Then in the evening serve hot dogs, popcorn & refreshments and perform the drama in English & Spanish.

Well, we all know where we were in April 2020, at least here in the US—in shutdown…so no play.

In our new town the previous idea won’t work. We’ve been told that it’s snowed before in April here and it’s normally too cold for outdoor activities until mid-May. So for the present the plan is to put it on at our church and invite others to come.

Please pray for this please, that it will be used for God’s glory! And whatever happens this year, it’s in His control!


  • Rehearsal Tip: At your first practice, record on your phone everyone reading through the script. This allows you to memorize your lines more quickly between practices!
  • You’ll notice notes on direction, etc. included in the script. These were for our benefit as we rehearsed. Feel free to use them or not. 😊

Feel free to download as many copies as you like, I just ask as a thanks that you please let me know.

This drama is dear to my heart and I’d love to know how the Lord uses it.

Enjoy and God bless!
