Easter Egg Hunt 2011!
The Saturday morning before Easter, volunteers from 10 different churches arrived at Simms Park to bless our city with the 3rd Annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by Bellflower Churches and Kingdom Causes. This event was once hosted by the City of Bellflower to promote community fellowship and celebrate Easter, but was canceled because of Budget cuts. The people in our local churches were quick to fill this gap and to continue this wonderful Easter celebration.
The Easter Egg Hunt was an event filled with Games, Crafts, Shows, Prizes, Candy, and Fellowship. This year over 150 volunteers from 10 Bellflower churches planned the event and filled 10,000 Easter eggs! My favorite part of this event was seeing so many of our churches working together to serve and bless our city in such a profound way. Close to 1,500 people were blessed by this event, and had the opportunity to meet their neighbors, learn more about the resurrection of our Lord, and celebrate the joys of Easter together as a City. It is my prayer and hope that our churches continue to mobilize their members to use their gifts and talents to bless the City of Bellflower.
