Earlier this week, Lynn Parrish, youth and worship secretary at Community Grace Brethren Church in Goldendale, Wash., sent a few photos from last weekend’s Easter celebrations. She writes:
Every year we do a community outreach Easter egg hunt. We serve a free Hot Dog lunch and give away prizes. Each child received a bag of candy and a book about Celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection. We also share the gospel message before the hunt began. We had big crowd this year! The weather was beautiful and the church was packed. We hope that everyone here not only had a good time but they truly understood the real meaning of Easter.
Pastor Greg Howell organized the Hunt sectioning outside area off for different age groups. We had a lot of volunteers from our church help hide eggs, give away prizes, cook and serve the lunch. David Quilici (director of worship and youth) gave the opening talk before the Hunt began.
GraceConnect has included a few of the photos she sent here. To see additional images (along with other photos from Grace Brethren churches in North America, see GraceConnect’s Easter 2013 Photo Wall.)
