Virtual Easter Egg Hunt
Sunday, April 4, 10:30 AM

This year’s church Easter Egg Hunt has gone virtual! We invite you to place eggs in your Zoom screen so children and adults of all ages can participate in “finding” eggs during service. By “hiding” eggs together, we can welcome fun into our service, share in a beloved church tradition, and keep each other safe. Any questions or concerns can be brought to Interim Director of Religious Education Alex Haider-Winnett.
