I’m actually surprised that more people haven’t asked the question yet. I’ve been asked it a few times, but not as many as I thought I would. The question is, “Are you doing the Egg Drop this year?” Maybe people just assume we’re doing it, because, you know, it’s our thing now and we’ve done it for 5 years in a row. Or maybe people assume we’re not doing it because they haven’t heard anything about it. Either way, I thought I would answer the question and explain.
After 5 years and literally thousands and thousands of eggs (close to 200,000 plastic candy filled eggs to be exact), Coastal will NOT be doing an Egg Drop this year (2014). The reason why is simple. Our church is growing and we’re building a new building on our property (the Egg Drop field) to accomodate the growth. Although we haven’t broken ground yet, we weren’t sure when that would happen when we started the process. And as you may or may not know, the Egg Drop takes months and months of planning and preparation. It now looks like we will break ground sometime in June.
So be on the lookout for other churches around the area having one and give them your support! And thank you for participating faithfully and spreading the word. And a huge thank you to those of you who have volunteered over the years (you have the t-shirts)! We could not do what we do without you! Be on the lookout – you know Coastal! We will always be looking for creative ways to reach out to and serve our children and community.
As always, we’d love for you to come check out our church! We have 3 services: 8:45am, 10:15am, & 11:45am! This Easter we’re having an Outdoor Community Easter Service, at those same times, underneath a HUGE tent on our property! It’s going to be a blast! We’d love to see you!
