Easter Egg Hunt
Sunday, April 9
Following the 11:15 am Worship Services
Children will proceed directly from the services to hunt eggs, so please bring basket(s) to the service.
We are keeping an eye on the forecast for Sunday. If the weather prevents our ability to host an Easter Egg Hunt, we will reschedule for the following Sunday, April 16, after the 11:15 am services. If the weather is questionable, the clergy will confirm the status of the egg hunt during the service announcements. We appreciate your understanding in advance.
Questions? Contact Molly Nielsen at
Don’t have anyone hunting eggs but want to help? We are grateful for individually-wrapped candy donations, which can be dropped off at the church offices anytime. Please contact Kathryn Saunders at saundersk@christchurchcharlotte with questions.
