FishHawk Fellowship Church in Lithia has been part of the Brandon community for over 15 years and for six of those years, they have hosted its annual Easter Eggstravaganza.
This year’s event will be held on March 23rd from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the church. Last year it had over 1,200 guests attend the free event and it is expecting more to join in the fun this year. The event’s activities will include a bungee jump, a rock climbing wall, pony rides, an Easter egg hunt, prize drawings, free food and much more. Mary McCullagh is the children’s director at the church and she loves to see the community come out and have fun while the church shares the love of Jesus with the community. “The FishHawk community is very supportive and we have only had positive feedback about the event,” McCullagh said. “Our hope for this event is to give families a totally free event which they may come enjoy all we have to offer.”
The mission of the church is to build bridges that connect people to a passionate life in Christ. They do this by sharing the hope of Christ and putting others above themselves and serving the people of the community in practical ways. That is why the Easter Eggstravaganza is so important to McCullagh and the church. “It is exciting to watch our church family pull together to accomplish this event, all for the glory of God, and to share his love with our community,” McCullagh said. In addition to the Eggstravaganza, the church will be having four Easter services on Easter Sunday, March 31. The times are 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 11:15 a.m. and 5 p.m. “The whole community is invited,” McCullah said. “All four services are identical and will have children classes from birth to fifth grade.”
