Maybe So ... (April 21)
Here at Utmost United Methodist Church, we opened the Easter egg hunt to the community. However, it rained all day. Our innovative children’s minister, utilizing our youth group, made excellent adjustments.
For the little children, they hid eggs in the nursery and kindergarten rooms. For the next older group, they moved to other Sunday school rooms. And for the oldest groups, eggs were hidden in the sanctuary, thus providing plenty of space for their energy and difficulty in finding eggs.
At the conclusion of the egg hunt, a celebration was held in the fellowship hall. The result was “a good time had by all,” as they say. The children did not seem disappointed. I think the fact that it was raining made them fear the egg hunt would be cancelled, so they were glad it went on anyway.
Our pastor, Rev. Mostly Wright, said, “Not only did we have a successful Easter egg hunt, but also we reached out to a number of community members who are not yet participating in our ministries.”
Major Day said, “Wonderful things can happen when we move beyond the walls of our facilities. I’m glad to see such openness among our people.”
Until next time …
