COMMUNITY EASTER EGG HUNT

APRIL 2, 2017

For the third year in a row,  Cyndi Rooker — head of our Christian Education Committee —planted nearly 500 plastic eggs throughout the sanctuary. Most of the multicolored eggs were empty but there were five shiny eggs and four golden eggs that contained something special. 

After our worship service, dozens of families from the church and surrounding community were ready for the Easter egg hunt. After all of the eggs were found, the children with the five shiny eggs were called to the front for their first lesson. 

 

Wearing a bright blue apron and pink bunny ears, Mrs. Rooker cracked open each egg to reveal pictures hidden inside. Then, she and Pastor Mary Anderson used each picture to teach the children about the different days of Holy Week, like Palm Sunday and the Last Supper. 

We hope it's a fun activity for kids to come get a little bit of background on the holy week story, and we love to do things for the community and bring people together.

After the hunt, the children traveled downstairs to play some Easter-themed games — including Twister, a raw egg toss and pin the tail on the bunny — and to collect their candy and prizes. No one went home empty-handed. 

 

As Pastor Mary says, "It's our joy to have the children come from the community and we love having an opportunity to tell them the story of Easter.  It's a lot more than bunnies and eggs and candy. We want children to learn the real meaning of the season: Jesus' death and resurrection." 

 

Every Sunday morning, Cyndy Rooker helps teach children about Christianity but this Sunday's lesson was a little bit different.
