Easter is just around the corner and we will be continuing our Oak City tradition of holding an annual easter egg hunt.  This year the hunt will be held at a park very near to our new church building's location. Lions Park is a fantastic neighborhood that is directly across Capital Blvd. from our new location and the neighborhood has an equally fantastic park in it that goes by the same name - Lions Park. There are probably literally thousands of houses in this area with tons of family and tons of kids. In an effort to bless our new neighbors and just let them know that we have moved nearby, we are going to be holding our EASTER EGG HUNT ON SATURDAY, APRIL 19 - the Saturday before Easter. We have ordered 4,000 eggs (yes, four thousand) for the hunt and our hope is to have some 250 kids at this event. So we need you to please bring your kids and please invite as many kids as you can from school, athletic leagues, girl scouts, whatever! :) We do have some needs for this event. We will need participating homegroups to bring either bottled water, juice boxes, some kind of cookies or dessert or some kind of chips - we will provide hotdogs and condiments. Please let me (Patrick) know asap if your group wants to participate. And even if your group doesn't want to formally participate, please let people know that they are free to come and bring their friends. Hope to see you all there.

So many time we think that God will only make the bad things better. However He will also make things that we think are great even better. Pray your needs and desires to God and see what He does.
