    Labor of Love is our annual event where children and students use their creativity to make crafts, art and baked goods. Their work is showcased after church one Sunday and the congregation is given the opportunity to “buy” their goods for a donation. This year proceeds will go to Family Promise to buy new bed. April 9 we will host a church-wide “workday”. We are looking for leaders to host simple craft-making stations or if you cannot host a station, but would like to donate supplies, we will gladly accept gem stickers, wood frames, small art canvasses, bead kits or other simple craft kits, etc. Rummage through your craft closet and see what you have that can be turned into a beautiful work of art! Donations can be turned in at the Children’s Registration Desk (please mark “Labor of Love”). Contact Cynthia Johnson at johnson.cynthia.d@gmail.com to host an activity station.

There will be food trucks, Easter egg hunts, face painting, bounce houses, stories in the The Gardens, a petting zoo, trackless train and much more! Hop on over for this FUN community event, with a special guest appearance from the Easter Bunny! We will need many volunteers to make this a successful event.  We are boasting a big 15,000 egg hunt, so please take a bag or two of Easter eggs, located in the Worship Center Lobby and fill them with candy (no chocolate please). You can also bring in your own dozen or two pre-filled eggs and drop them in the bins in the Worship Center or the Ministry Center Lobby. We look forward to an “EGGcellent” time and appreciate all the help and support we can get!! Click here to volunteer.
