Children enjoy egg hunt, Easter story
Lincolnville — Crossroads Baptist Church began its Easter celebration early with an Easter egg hunt Saturday, April 19, at the home of Pastor Dave Pouchot and his wife Marian.
This was the second year the couple had hosted the hunt; previously, it took place at Lincolnville Central School, where the church has services.
First, Pouchot asked a blessing. Then children were separated into three groups by age, with a separate hunting area for each group: toddlers to kindergarten, first through third grade and fourth through sixth grade. Each child had a bag or a bucket in which to collect the brightly colored plastic eggs filled with candy.
Following the hunt, the different age groups gathered with an assigned adult member of the church to hear the Easter story, and then everyone was treated to lunch, featuring macaroni and cheese and hot dogs.
