Magnolia Methodist Church holds its annual Easter party and egg hunt 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 1.

As part of the event, lunch is provided along with activities and a bounce house. The Easter party and egg hunt is for children ages 3 to 12. Parents are encouraged to bring an easter basket or a bag for the egg hunt.

“There’s going to be a lot of activities,” said administrative council chairperson and evangelism team coordinator Judi Delpiero. “We’ll serve lunch, we’re going to tell the story of Easter, the Easter egg hunt, and just a lot of games and activities for the kids.”
