Olive Branch church celebrates Easter with community event

Olive Branch Easter egg hunt

OLIVE BRANCH, IL (KFVS) - The Trinity Assembly of God church held an Easter event for children and adults in Olive Branch, IL on Saturday.

Pastor Stephen Clardy said they provided this event to help give back to the community.

"This is just us as a way of reaching out to the community to let the community know that we are here, we love children and we are trying to help children in this area," Clardy said.

Clardy said this was a great way to spread the spirit and meaning of Easter through acts of togetherness and kindness.

"It's not so much preaching down their throat but it's showing by example like Jesus did. That Jesus is alive and he resurrected," Clardy continued. "He is living through us and we are showing that love through the community the way we are here today."

The event held an Easter egg hunt, prizes including bikes and toys, food and more.
