On Sunday, April 20, Stuart Heights Baptist Church will hold the 6th Annual Easter at Coolidge Community Egg Hunt and Worship Service at Coolidge Park from 9 to 11 a.m.  Admission and parking are free and open to the public.

  Guests and members are encouraged to bring a picnic and stick around after the service for a chance to spend time with friends and family.

Before, during and after the egg hunt, face painters and story tellers will be set up to provide entertainment and share the gospel message with children.  Free coffee and Julie Darling Donuts will be available at the welcome pavilion, and greeters will be stationed around the park to provide information and help guests who are new to Easter at Coolidge.

Once again, Stuart Heights’ will have a portable baptistery and will again be doing baptisms after the service.
