It's a bird, it's a plane, noooo it's an Easter Bunny!

Church of Hope will have a traditional Easter egg hunt after 11 morning services on Sunday, April 1 with a skydiving Easter bunny making its way through the sky onto church grounds to kick-off the egg hunt with 50,000 eggs.

“We have the Easter Egg hunt with a skydiving bunny,” said Liz Prado with the church.

The fun gets started with Good Friday services on March 30 and Easter sermon at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 31 and Sunday April 1 services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. with Pastor Rod Young with a series “A New Day to a New Way.”

The community-wide festivities includes helicopter egg drop, giant inflatables, games with fun activities for the whole family.

The church is located in Calallen at 13024 Leopard St.

What is the full meaning of Easter?

The New Testament states that the resurrection of Jesus, which Easter celebrates, is a foundation of the Christian faith. The resurrection established Jesus as the powerful Son of God and is cited as proof that God will judge the world in righteousness.

Why do we have baskets on Easter?

In the Christian tradition, Easter is a celebration of Christ's resurrection. ... Before they were associated with the Christian holiday, Easter baskets had their roots. Since Easter is celebrated around the same time as the Spring Equinox, Christians reinvented many of the old traditions. 

Why is there an Easter bunny and eggs?

The story of the Easter Bunny is thought to have become common in the 19th Century. Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter of babies (called kittens), so they became a symbol of new life. Legend has it that the Easter Bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are also a symbol of new life.
