Community Event – Mar 24

Our FPC Easter Egg Hunt will take place on Saturday, March 24. Registration begins at 10:30 AM.   This is a free community event open to all of our local families.

We hope to have thousands and thousands of eggs available so we need you and your family here to help collect them!  We will have age-appropriate hunts for kids from toddlers through grade 5!  There will be Bibles for kids, giveaways, bounce houses, snacks, and lots more!

The egg was a symbol of the rebirth of the earth in pre-Christian celebrations of spring. However, the Easter egg itself was defined by early Christians as an Easter symbol of the resurrection of Jesus: the egg symbol was likened to the tomb from which Christ arose.  Lizette Larson-Miller, a professor with the Graduate Theological Union of Berkeley, traces the specific custom of the Easter egg hunt to the Protestant Christian Reformer Martin Luther, stating "We know that Martin Luther had Easter egg hunts where the men hid the eggs for the women and children, and it probably has this connection back to this idea of eggs being the tomb."
