Wesleyan Church to host community egg hunt

On Easter Sunday, April 8, Sedona residents will have the opportunity to celebrate together as a community. Christ Center Wesleyan Church invites everyone to the Performing Arts Center at Sedona Red Rock High School at 10 a.m. for a worship service along with an Easter egg hunt for kids.

The service will include uplifting music, a personal story of a changed life, and teaching that is designed to be relevant. Christ Center Pastor, Frank Robinson, says that the theme of the service will be based on the idea that “death loses; life wins.” He will explain the message of hope from the story of the Resurrection.

During the service, children can participate in an egg hunt that will cover the soccer field of the high school. Christ Center Children’s Director, Laura Pratt, says that her team is hiding more than 850 eggs, all filled with candy and prizes. The participants will also have the chance to win larger prizes. Afterward, the kids will gather in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center to hear the Easter story.

Following the service, there will be time for the community to mingle, with snacks and coffee provided. For additional information about the Easter celebration, please call the Christ Center office at (928) 282-9767, or call Assistant Pastor Laura Aronson at (928) 300-1477.
