One EGG-stra Special Event

Bunnies, eggs, and candy galore, this year’s Community Easter Egg Hunt brought many families out to enjoy a morning of fun prior to Easter weekend. On March 28, 23 volunteers and around 46 families gathered at Christ Church for a family-friendly event featuring more than just a big egg hunt. Kids could travel to a variety of different stations including two different crafts, egg dyeing, face painting, cookie decorating, storybook reading, bingo, relay races, games, and pictures with the Easter bunny. Needless to say, kids stayed busy as different groups headed out to the side yard to hunt eggs. Thanks to the support of the congregation, we were able to hide 2,700 eggs out for the children to find. There was certainly no shortage of chocolate!

I cannot say “thank-you” enough for all of the help and support that everyone provided in making this fun event possible. From sorting and filling eggs, to donating juice and cookie dough, to showing up early Saturday morning to serve, it was definitely a team effort! Through this event we were able to reach many children and families both within and outside of our congregation. We provided a safe environment for them to have fun in and were able to hand out many informational packets about our church along the way. I’d say that’s pretty egg-straordinary!

Reflections: Vacation Bible School June 2013

When we at Christ Church held our Vacation Bible School this past summer little did I realize the lasting memories!

The theme was "Kingdom Rock"! The church was full of children from our congregation and even more from our surrounding community to learn about God's love for them.

Their excitement and enthusiasm brought the church to life! Those serving enjoyed the fellowship while working together. We learned daily how to "Stand Strong" for God. We ended our VBS week with special performances by the children of one of our VBS theme songs for their families and our congregation during our Sunday worship services. What a blessing is was to be a part of this memorable week with the kids.
