With Easter coming up this Sunday, April 4, the Timber Ridge Church is hosting the Megga Hunt on Saturday, April 3, at the Stephenville City Park for all of Erath County to come and enjoy. This event is free and will include over 50,000 easter eggs.
The Megga Hunt will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. with designated time slots for children of different ages. The various egg hunt times are as follows: birth through two-year-olds at 10:30 a.m., three-year-olds through pre-K at 10:45 a.m., kindergarten through 3rd grade at 11:00 a.m., 4th grade through 6th grade at 11:15 a.m. and then there will also be a special needs hunt that will take place at 11:00 a.m. as well.
To go along with the Megga Hunt, there are several other activities to keep everyone entertained. For instance, there will be picture opportunities with the Easter Bunny, bounce houses as well as other fun games and activities to enjoy.
The Timber Ridge Church Megga Hunt started in 2012 and has been going strong ever since.
Pastor Nic Burleson of Timber Ridge Church said it began because the church “wanted to do something to give back it the community.”
Burleson also mentions how the church wants to “be a blessing to the community as well as for families to have a good time in a fun and safe environment.”
