United Church of Warner hosted an Easter event last month. They referred to the event as “Easter Jam – Trunk-or-Treat with an Easter Twist.” They had various stations with candy and small toys (many contained within plastic Easter eggs), a craft table where kids could make a set of bunny ears, free raffles and the Easter Bunny. They were blessed to have 55 children attend the event.
Their hope is that as we have these sort of events, over time they can become more closely connected with the community. Their goal is to use these events to slowly get to know more people, and ideally, over a number of years, help some people to become more open to church and exploring Jesus.
