Easter Egg Hunt

The Hunt is On!

Children of all ages are invited to next year's Greenwood Easter Egg Hunt on he Saturday before Easter.

We'll feature a cake walk, face painting and, of course, an Easter egg hunt on the church grounds.

At the 2016 Hunt, our Easter Egg kids helped assemble 50 Health Kits for United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to use in relief efforts around the world.
