There are many choices for observing Easter this weekend:
The annual Easter Egg Hunt is at Rhylander Park, Saturday, April 3rd. This is a really fun event which is well organized with the kids being divided into age groups in different areas of the park. Local merchants contribute prizes along with the candy and there are plenty of volunteers to assist. Just remember, don't park on the grass at Rhylander even for the short time you will be at the hunt. Either go early for good parking or just leave yourself enough time to park on the side streets and walk down to the park.

One Voice from Kansas City
April 3, Saturday @ 7PM
Free Admission w/ Love offering taken
Weeping Water First Christian Church 2010 Concert Series starts with an awesome concert on April 3, Saturday at 7PM featuring One Voice. Since it's humble beginnings as a church duet in 1995, One Voice has always had as it's goal to share the gospel of Christ through song. Over the years, that goal has been met over and over as hundreds have chosen Christ as Savior through this ministry, and thousands of others have been blessed through the music of One Voice.
Realizing that their ministry is not just to the congregations, One Voice has as a major goal to uplift and encourage pastors all over the United States and abroad. As the song says, if "just one more soul were to walk down the aisle," it would be worth every effort made on that behalf. Our pastors need support, and the guys are determined to do just that.
The guys see their mission as just that, missions. Musical missions. Hearts can truly be inspired, uplifted, and changed through music. The guys don't take this responsibility lightly, and they choose their music carefully because of that understanding. The power of music is truly awesome, and God sets great store by it. One Voice from Kansas City area have deep roots in Southern Gospel, and it comes out in their traditional Southern Gospel style. The concert is free admission and will be located at the First Christian Church, 306 W. H St. with a love offering taken for the ministry.
