ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT

It will be held on THIS Saturday, April 19 at 11:00 a.m., on the Church grounds.  We ask that church members bring candy-filled eggs (NO boiled eggs, please).  Prize item donations would also be appreciated.  We need people to help hide eggs at 10:00 a.m.--teenagers who think they are too old to hunt, the young at heart.  Bring your child(ren) to the Egg Hunt ON TIME.  We do not want to see any child(ren) disappointed because they missed the Hunt, due to late arrival.

 
NEED TUTORS FOR AFTERNOON SESSIONS…AND MORNING SESSIONS!
