2018 Community Easter Egg Hunt Recap

On Saturday, March 31st, Cross of Glory held its annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt. Weather forced us inside, but we made adjustments and divided the kids up by age groups and gave each group a unique experience. After the hunt, everyone stayed for food, crafts and cookie decorating. The Easter Bunny was around the whole time for some great photo ops.

Event: Annual Community Easter Egg Hunt – March 31

ANNUAL COMMUNITY EASTER EGG HUNT

March 31st, 2018 at 10:00 am sharp – Don’t be even a minute late!

Come One, Come All! Rain 🙁 or Shine ☀!!

On Saturday, March 31st, Cross of Glory will be hosting its annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt. We’ll divide the kids up by age groups and have filled plastic Easter eggs for them to find. We’ll also have lemonade or juice, crafts and cookie decorating for kids and parents after the hunt, and we’re looking forward to seeing the Easter Bunny stop by so bring your phones and cameras for some great photo ops.

The event starts promptly at 10 am, and given how fast kids can move when they are looking for eggs, you’ll want to be there a bit early. This event is for the entire community (we have thousands of filled eggs), so bring your neighbors and friends (and don’t forget an Easter basket to hold your eggs).

If weather permits, event is held outdoors. But if the weather is bad, we move inside!

Second Sundays Concerts and Eats at 6pm June 11, July 9 August 13

Second Sundays (June 11, July 9, and August 13) – I’m told that a staple of summers in the past were those Sunday evenings when you could bring a meal, gather with friends (new and old), play yard games with the kids, and listen to some great music outdoors at COG. So we brought it back – Second Sundays starts at 6 pm on June 11, and is a perfect opportunity to invite your neighbors for a fun and relaxing evening.

Come Support Our Children’s Christmas Program!

On December 18, at our 9:30 service, Cross of Glory will be hosting a very special event, our Children’s Christmas Program! Whether your child is participating or not, you are ALL welcome to come and watch – and celebrate! – this wonderful program. And of course, stay for the service!

This year, our volunteer-in-charge is our own Jennie Hoffman. Taking on an event like this, with so many of our young folk, must be quite a challenge. How did Jennie become involved? “This is my third year with Kids Klub and helping with the Children’s program,” Jennie said. “The last two years were smaller programs, where the kids participated in an activity for the congregation.This year, Pastor Dana shared a play script that we are using.”

How many kids are involved and how often are practices? “We have 22 children in the play,” Jennie boasted, “The age ranges are fantastic as we range from four to 17! Frankly, we don’t practice enough! We’ve been practicing during Kids Klub, on Wednesday evenings and we will practice before church on Sunday.”

So how far off the reservation will the play be? Or will this be traditional? “No venturing this year…traditional story,” Jennie replied. “A traditional Christmas Story with an adorable group of kids. Sheep that are four and 15, twins that are the donkey and cow. We have three kings…Well maybe two kings and one queen. Our shepherds are teenagers, allowing the younger kids the opportunity to read. They are so proud and excited to lend a voice to this story. Their singing voices have been strong in practice, crossing fingers we don’t have a lot of stage fright!”

Can we look forward to the traditional songs?  “There will be several songs during the play: ‘Away in a Manger’, ‘Angels We Have Heard on High’, ‘We Three Kings’, and ‘Silent Night’.”

All Christmas programs have a baby Jesus story. Does Jennie have one to share? “We do have a Joseph that is ‘uncomfortable’ escorting Mary. Didn’t help the oldest boy (age 15…who is playing a sheep) commented a little on that situation!”

“I truly love the kids of our Church,” commented Jennie. “They are honest and curious. Very happy they have a program this year that is more involved!”

Besides Jennie, who gets the shout out for helping this year? This year’s program would not have happened without Carol Hruska and Chris Quenemeyer. Thanks all!
