Eggstravaganza Promises To Be Eggciting Event
- Name: St. John's Lutheran Church
- Occasion: St. John Lutheran Church Eggstravaganza
The egg has long been seen by followers of Christ as a symbol of the resurrection since while being dormant it contains a new life sealed within it. Christians in southern Germany introduced the practice of hiding eggs at Easter in difficult to reach places. The obstacles represented the trials of Jesus on His way to the crucifixion.
St. John Lutheran Church & Early Learning Center located at 7214 South Cass Avenue in Darien, IL will continue the tradition by hosting their annual Eggstravaganza on Saturday, April 7, 2012 from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon with an egg hunt at 10:00 A.M. The event is open to the public free of charge as a community outreach.
In addition to looking for treat-filled plastic eggs, children and their families will have the opportunity to participate in games and to make crafts. Roaming puppeteers along with Shami, the congregation’s K-9 Comfort Dog, will greet all who attend. It promises to be a joy-filled morning.
The event is one of many scheduled during Holy Week. Others will include: Maundy Thursday Service, 7:00 P.M.; Good Friday Service, 7:00 P.M.; Prayer Vigil, Good Friday through Holy Saturday; Easter Saturday Contemporary Service, 5:00 P.M.; Easter Sunday Sunrise Service, 6:00 A.M.; and Easter Sunday Traditional Services at 8:45 A.M. and 10:45 A.M.
