The Sunday school did things a little differently on Easter Sunday (April 20, 2014). It was a wonderful morning spent with our church family with an Easter Egg Hunt and Pancake Breakfast!
The Youth arrived bright and early to hide a multitude of eggs for our kiddos in preschool-5th grade. They had a wonderful time searching and while all that was going on outside, we were preparing a delightful breakfast downstairs.
It was a beautiful spring morning and all of that special togetherness was, of course, capped off with an outstanding Easter Worship Service in the sanctuary. We had a full crowd and choir, so many beautiful Easter lilies, and a service to treasure - in part because it was our last Easter service with Pastor Jones before his retirement this summer.
Yes, it was a blessed and beautiful culmination of Holy Week, and we're so thankful for everyone who was able to take part in that.
Christ is Risen!
On Easter, we normally cancel Sunday School for the day, but this year we thought we'd change things up a bit.
This year we will be having an Easter Egg Hunt for children in Preschool through 5th Grade. However, the older kids are invited to help the younger kids and with the hunt in general.
Before the hunt, each child will receive an egg with silly bandz formed in Easter-related shapes inside, along with a card explaining what each of those symbols stand for.
This is not just your ordinary Easter Egg Hunt, though. In the midst of all these eggs, there will be one egg that is empty - symbolizing the empty tomb. The child who finds that egg, will get a special prize.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we'll be able to hold our hunt outside, if not we'll be ready to move it indoors.
We're still ironing out the details of this fun event, so stay tuned, we'll keep you posted!
