WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Highland Church ends their weekend with an Easter egg hunt that boasted 5,000 eggs.
The Easter Egg hunt began after Sunday service and wraps up their three day Easter weekend. On Friday, the church hosted an egg hunt for teens, while on Saturday the church hosted a block party.
In the eggs that filled the ground on Sunday afternoon, eggs were filled with candy and tickets for prizes.
The church says last year they hid Easter eggs at children’s houses but coming together collectively felt so much better.
“Children just as well as ourselves, we all need that community to be together with others and to interact with one another,” said Highland Church children’s pastor, Josh Brown. “That’s a vital part of humanity. So getting together like this, it revives us.”
Pastor Ryan Thomas says though the Easter Egg Hunt was great, it feels even better to celebrate Christ, the reason for the season.
