ANNOUNCEMENTS
Egg Hunt for All Children Follows 10AM Easter Day Service.  Our Children's Ministry and Youth Ministry programs, headed up respectively by Ann Enkiri and Madi Chase, have organized a fun Easter Egg Hunt for all children attending our 10 AM Easter Day Service. Parents and children, please gather in the Parish Hall (lower level) immediately following the service. Children will pick up their decorated egg-gathering bags (plenty of extras will be on hand) and listen to directions from Madi and Ann. Our parish youth will staff our church grounds for safety, but parents are encouraged to head outside and enjoy the hunt! The garden area just outside of the Parish Hall will be reserved for parents and their toddlers and Pre-K children.  
Easter Flowers
