An EGG-Citing Morning!

Cynthia Drury

The morning of April 16 was cloudy and warm on the Wildhorse Grill Patio as members of the Fellowship At The Ranch Church set up for the Second Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Church volunteers covered the grassy hill below the patio with plastic eggs filled with candy. When they were done, the green grass was filled with brightly colored plastic eggs.

At the appointed hour, over 200 children, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents filled the patio area. The excitement built as the children looked over the edge of the patio and saw the eggs in the grass. They were bouncing and showing their families all the eggs that were waiting for them to pick up.

The Easter Egg Hunt started with a prayer by Pastor Ed Jones. The children lined up in age groups and walked down the hill. At the bottom of the hill with bags and baskets in hand, the children waited as the countdown started. The adults counted down: five—four—three—two—one, and the Egg Hunt began! The older children ran up the hill gathering eggs as they went, much like a vacuum cleaner getting every egg in their path. The younger children, some with parents helping, picked up their eggs a little slower. When the children reached the top of the hill, they had bags/baskets full of eggs and smiles on their faces, and they showed their accomplishment to everyone. “Thank you,” “That was fun,” “Did you see me?” and “Look at all the eggs I have!” echoed through the patio.

The Easter Egg Hunt is just one of many activities and events hosted by Fellowship At The Ranch Church. You are invited to visit Fellowship At The Ranch Church Worship at the Robson Ranch clubhouse, Sundays at 10 a.m., for our Meet & Greet followed by our Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. For more information about the church, please visit our website
