Easter Egg Hunt Helpers
EYC and Fun Club are invited to help hide eggs for the Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday!
Meet at the back of the church after the opening hymn. Once the eggs are hidden, we will tiptoe back into church to sit with our families. After communion, please meet again at the back of the church. We will smile for the parish photo and quickly exit the sanctuary to "guard" the eggs before the hunt starts!
