Easter Celebration and Egg Hunt

On Saturday, March 19, FPC Bethlehem held its second Intergenerational
Easter Celebration and Egg Hunt, an event that included a pancake
breakfast, crafts, and an egg hunt to celebrate the joy of Easter. More than
300 people participated in all or part of the celebration.

The morning began with over 150 adults, children, and volunteers in Fellowship
Hall for a Pancake Breakfast fundraiser to support FPCB Youth
Mission Trips. Breakfast attendees enjoyed performances by the Trinity
and Carol Children’s Choirs and the High School SNL Worship Band, as
well as an interactive Children’s Chat by Meredith Lawser.

The rest of the morning included Easter craft activities for children of
all ages, including learning how to fold palm crosses, decorating plant
pots and planting seeds to celebrate New Life, and building your own
set of Resurrection Eggs that portray the events of Holy Week. Following
the crafts, 136 children and their families headed out to the church’s
back lawn for an Easter Egg Hunt for children up to 5th grade. 2,812
eggs stuffed with candy, stickers and small toys were snatched up within
minutes by excited children! Thanks to all who participated, especially the
many volunteers and those who donated supplies for the egg hunt.
