Terre Haute, IN - Local youngsters are getting excited for Easter; meanwhile a local church is preparing for an Easter event that will be fun for kids and adults.
On Wednesday night, members of Terre Haute's Remnant Church got together to prepare themselves for this weekend's 5th Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt. They kept themselves busy as they filled a total of 27,000 eggs with prizes!
But they weren't alone they had the help of over 100 folks, those included local leaders, and members of several fraternities and sororities from Indiana State University.
The church's pastor says all this hard work will give the kids the greatest Easter experience, ever.
"We do it because, uh, man we just want to bring community together. It's so vital that families stay together. And work hard to interact with each other. The bottom line is, as a church, all we can do is share the love of god. That is our passion."---- Branden Norman / Lead Pastor, Remnant Church
Church officials say it took them just under two hours to fill all 27,000 eggs; but they said the work was worth it.
If you're interested in participating in the Community Easter Egg Hunt it is open to everyone.
The event takes place this Saturday March 24th at Terre Haute North High School.
The event starts at 11, but registration begins at 10 AM it's free.
There will be food, drinks, games and tons of good prizes. Everyone is encouraged to come out and have a fun time with friends and family.
