NEW BRITAIN - Spring traditions continue at First Church of Christ Congregational as on Sunday, the church will host its annual Easter egg hunt, following the traditional Easter service at 10 a.m.
The announcement stated that the church will celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ with inspiring music, words of hope and hymns of praise.
The community is invited to enjoy the refreshments that will be served after the egg hunt.
“Following the worship service, children are welcome to participate in our annual rite of spring, collecting Easter eggs on the church lawn,” Faith Formation and Congregational Care Coordinator Bill Vibert said. “Coffee and juice will be served in our Fireside Room during and after the hunt.”
While many faith communities celebrate the Easter traditions, the meaning of the Easter egg is not always emphasized.
“Some say that on Easter the egg symbolizes the tomb of Jesus, because it is made to bear new life,” Vibert said. “Others believe it is an Easter symbol representing the tomb door which was rolled away to free the living Jesus. Either way, kids will be treated to filled eggs on Easter morning.”
First Church of Christ Congregational is located at 803 Corbin Ave. To learn more about the church, visit www.firstnewbritain.org or call 860-229-3709.
