The Easter Bunny paid an early visit to Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Saturday morning when he joined kids and their parents for “breakfast with the bunny” and an Easter egg hunt.
Fellowship Hall was filled with families enjoying a feast of pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage prepared by members of the church who volunteered their Saturday to make the day of community outreach a huge success.
Midway through breakfast, kids were joined by the Easter bunny and everyone had a chance to interact and pose for pictures with the rabbit.
After breakfast and games, the rabbit led the kids down another exciting path. Divided by age, they were taken to various locations on the church’s lawn for the traditional Easter egg hunt. More than 2500 eggs filled with candy and toys had been hidden on the grounds.
The event was one of the many outreach and community projects that Central heads up each year giving children from all around town the opportunity to participate. Kroger at 5665 E. Mockingbird Lane gave generous discounts on the cost of food for breakfast.
Central is located at 4711 Westside Dr. just off Mockingbird Lane. The educational building houses a day habilitation program for disabled adults. There is a dog park on the grounds of the church that is open to the community. Dallas Summer Musical Academy holds workshops in the church auditorium and will instruct a free drama camp this summer. The church is also a beautiful and affordable venue for weddings.
For more information on the church and its programs call the office at 214-526-7291. Sunday worship is at 11 a.m. Come for Easter! There is plenty of parking and plenty of seating.
