On April 7, Imagine Church hosted the first annual Easter egg drop in Westfield at Oak Trace Elementary School. More than 12,000 plastic Easter eggs were dropped from a helicopter that flew over the fields at Oak Trace to the cheers of the hundreds of families gathered.
Children participated in one of three age-specific Easter egg hunts immediately following the egg drop.
Local Westfield entertainer and full-time comedian, Tony Wolf, was on hand entertaining children with his unique brand of family comedy prior to the Egg hunt. Mayor Andy Cook welcomed everyone who came out.
“We are thrilled to have such an exciting event taking place in our community,” said Cook. “I hope this becomes an annual event which families can enjoy for years to come.”
There was on overwhelming response to this year’s event with preregistrations filling up in just one week. The eggs were dropped and 750 children participated in this year’s Egg drop, making it the largest egg hunt ever in Westfield, and one of the biggest in Hamilton County. Seventy-five volunteers from Imagine Church served at the event.
“We worked very hard to make this a unique and memorable event for the whole community. We’re excited Imagine Church can offer fun events like this to serve the families of Westfield and the surrounding area,” says Brad Ruggles, lead pastor of Imagine Church. “We had a phenomenal response from the community and we look forward to bringing the Egg drop again next year even bigger and better!”
“Although Imagine is a brand new church, we decided from the beginning we wanted to serve the community to the best of our ability, and we think providing a free event like the Imagine Church Easter Egg drop is a great way to bring the community together,” says Aaron Sherrick of Imagine Church.
Imagine Church offers upbeat music, engaging teaching and fun-filled programs for children.
