Hunting Easter eggs in the Meditation Garden
A pancake breakfast and an Easter egg hunt were enjoyed by over 100 Dallas children Saturday morning. Hosted by Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), the event was free and it was open to all!
After a breakfast of pancakes, sausage links and scrambled eggs, kids had an opportunity to color pictures and participate in a sing-a-long before teaming up in designated ae groups to hunt for Easter eggs. Over 2500 eggs were hidden on the church’s six-acre grounds.
Central Christian Church is the oldest continuously operating Protestant church in Dallas, but it is young in spirit. This year Central has renewed its focus on children and families!
Activities such as “family movie night,” “art camp day” and Vacation Bible School are planned to educate and engage children in activities to help build their faith.
The first family movie night is April 25 at 7:30 p.m. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs (Central has the popcorn and bug spray) and enjoy a family friendly movie on the church lawn.
The Acres community garden on the church grounds is another way for families to spend time together and literally grow together. Contact the church office at 214-526-7291 for information about leasing a plot.
Realizing that families come in “all different sizes and all different kinds,” Central even has a community dog park. It was voted “best dog park in Dallas” by the Observer and it is open to the public.
The church is located at 4711 Westside Dr. just off Mockingbird Lane and all are welcome at 11 a.m. Sunday worship. However, if you would like a pre-view, tune in to WRR, (101.1 FM) at 9 a.m. Sunday mornings—the services are broadcast.
