City of Cumberland, Tennessee – Yellow Creek Baptist Church held its annual Community Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 16, 2022. The weather was overcast, warm with a light breeze.
“The weather was great. It was originally forecast to rain 40% today. So I prayed daily that the LORD would take care of it. It rained last night and I was afraid the fields would be a mess. But even walking around in flip flops, there was no problem there,” said event coordinator Jasmine Atkins.
200 prize tickets were distributed in each section. Each registered child also received a ticket so that everyone had a chance to win.
“We had many volunteers who worked for weeks to put this together. They pre-stuffed eggs for weeks. Then our church family got together last Wednesday night to finish stuffing our eggs,” Atkins said.
“The power went out that night and we poked eggs in the dark. It was a bit of a challenge. We had many, many volunteers. Our church family really pulled it all together,” Atkins said.
Once all the children were in place, the signal was given and everyone rushed out into the fields to collect the eggs. In no time, it seemed, all the eggs were collected and everyone started opening their eggs and looking for tickets.
There were three prizes for each age group, a water toy, a riding toy and an Easter basket. All prices were age appropriate.
“The event was very successful,” said Deacons President Shane Moore. “I was delighted to see so many people show up.”
After it was over, everyone was all smiles and laughs. Everyone had a great time at Yellow Creek Baptist Church. It really is a wonderful family event.
“We’re glad everyone came out today to make this a great event,” Moore said. “If you don’t have a church to call home, you are welcome here.”
Yellow Creek Baptist Church’s next event will be a fireworks display on July 3 with live music, a bluegrass show and more.
