Easter egg hunts are this weekend

The following Easter egg hunts have been scheduled:


Grace Community Church: The church will host its annual 25,000-egg community Easter egg hunt Easter Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at the church.

Registration will be from 1 to 1:25 p.m., and the hunt will begin at 1:30 p.m. sharp.

Grace Community Church is located just south of Goshen Middle School at the intersection of C.R. 36 and C.R. 21.

There is no cost for this hunt, and there will also be Spanish translators available.

There will be five fields divided into different age groups, with ages ranging from 1-year-olds to fifth-graders.

There will also be prizes for sixth- through 12th-graders included this year.

Children will have the opportunity to hunt for more than 25,000 candy-, coin- and coupon-filled eggs. At the conclusion of the hunt, children will have the opportunity to win one of two tricycles, two wagons, 12 bicycles and six Wal-Mart gift cards.

Sixth- through 12th-graders will have the opportunity to win one of two iPod Shuffles, cosmic bowling packages or theater packages.

“This looks to be our biggest hunt ever,” Lead Pastor Jim Brown said. “We are just excited to have so many children and families on the property and be able to share Jesus’ love with them. We love our community and want them to know that.”

For more information, contact Grace Community Church at 533-7546.

First English Lutheran Church: At 9:30 a.m. Sunday, First English Lutheran Church, 406 S. Fifth St., will host a children’s Easter egg hunt.
