2015 Community Easter Egg Hunt

I love our Community Easter Egg Hunt.  It is an event that brings people from all over our community together to give kids a fun time.  Our Easter egg hunt is unique in several ways.

First, we begin in our auditorium and this year we had over 371 people!

After a brief introduction about our church, our children’s pastor, Justin, shares the Easter story through “Resurrection Eggs.”

Then we have age-graded hunts.  All the children, regardless of age, get plenty of candy and none of the little ones get trampled.  So we begin with the 1s and 2s…

and move to the older kids.

All the kids are eager and it is fun to watch them!

The kids find plenty of candy and prize tickets to redeem.

My favorite table is the resurrection egg table where the kids explain to volunteers their clue to the Easter story. Oh…and the kids all get a free Easter cookie!

Why do we do this?   It’s an opportunity to communicate to our community that we love their kids!  It gets them on our property with the opportunity to share the Easter story and to invite them to Easter services.  Lord willing, we will do this event again next year!  And now…you know what to expect!  See you in a year!

Blessings!
