— EASTMINSTER’S ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT will happen on Palm Sunday, March 25, following the 11:15AM service. If you attend the 9AM service, please arrive at the church by 12:15PM so we can promptly begin at 12:30PM. In order to help all the children collect eggs at their own pace, Three year olds and Pre-K children will search on the toddler playground, grades K – 2nd on the larger playground, and our youngest members two and under will search with mom and dad’s assistance on the grassy area outside the playground. Once the eggs are found, children may turn them in for a gift bag filled with Easter treats. It promises to be a fun way to celebrate the coming of our Lord!
