Spring has sprung and even with the ever-changing weather one thing remains the same, we have hope eternal in Jesus Christ and the Easter Egg Hunt is on it’s way! Mark your calendars folks: Saturday, April 15th at 10am we will have over 200 hunters and their families participating in fun, excitement, and activities across our parking lot. Please be in prayer for how this event will touch the lives of our community and bring families closer to Christ.

Be on the lookout for Easter Egg Hunt fliers in your Sunday School folder on how you can help with this event: donating pre-packaged candy, baking a cake, pie, or cookies for the cake walk, or volunteering at a station. This is one of the biggest events we have for the community so your prayers, support, and dedication are needed and appreciated in making this event a success.

With chocolate covered eggs, cute bunnies, and jellybeans that make children and even some adults excited, it is easy to miss the importance of this holiday. We serve a risen Savior and whenever I get busy with planning or organizing for our Easter Egg Hunt, I begin humming a familiar hymn:

“ I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today,

I know that He is living whatever men may say.

I see His hands of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,

And just the time I need Him, He’s always near.

He Lives, He lives, Christ Jesus Lives today,

He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.

He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!

You ask me how I know He lives?

He lives within my heart.”

May we always remember that we serve a RISEN Savior and that our actions reflect that He lives within our heart

Because of Christ,
