Thousands attend Easter services, helicopter egg drop at Jackson church

Egg drop in Jackson, MO

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - Connection Point Church in Jackson, Missouri held their Easter resurrection service on Sunday. They had more than 2,000 people in attendance throughout the five services during the Easter weekend.

Connection Point Church Lead Pastor Chris Vaught said it was great to see so many children and adults come out to the services and receive the message of the resurrection of Jesus, but to also have fun afterwards collecting eggs that were dropped out of a helicopter.

"It's so important to watch hundreds of children this weekend come and hear the gospel of Jesus; the he resurrected and that God loves them," Vaught said. "But then to be able to come outside with our helicopter egg drops and our glow in the dark egg toss the other night. Just to have fun!"

Vaught said it's important for children and adults of all ages to take a day like Easter and enjoy each other's company as a community.

“Our world is full of pain and struggles and to see people come this weekend and enjoy themselves, to have hope, to have laughter, to watch those kids go and play and have fun,” Vaught continued. “It brings so much joy to us because God wants us to pass along his message of love, joy and peace. We saw that this weekend.”
