Easter Sunday is Fast Approaching and Goldonna is Getting Ready to Have Their Very First Community Egg Hunt

The Goldonna Community Egg Hunt will be held Saturday April 3, 2021 from 10:00am until 1:00pm at the City Hall. This event is free and open to the public. The children will be broken up into 0-3, 4-6, and 7-12. There will be a scavenger hunt for the children 13 years and above. Prize eggs will be hidden as well. The event will have games, food and pictures. This is the first annual community egg hunt but they are hoping to make it an annual event that all of the residents look forward to.

If you see a committee member be sure and thank them for their time and efforts, they are very excited to share this event with the community. Rebecca Harrison, Briannia Bedgood, Brittany Bedgood, Cynthia Bedgood, Karsyn Sanders, Nichole McGee, Stephanie Goss, Tyrie Coleman and Reba Phelps.

This year I wanted to reach out to some the area residents and share what they love most and cherish about the Easter holiday. I had the great pleasure of speaking with this amazing group of eager celebrators and I am so grateful they took the time out of their day to share with me.

Gayle Cloud
“My favorite thing about Easter is to attend sunrise service to celebrate the sacrifice that Jesus made for all of us, and then to spend the day celebrating with my family”.

George Procell
“The most important thing about Easter for me will always be celebrating the resurrection of our savior. Not a bunny or colored eggs. Just Jesus”

Kami Bedgood Dobson
“My favorite thing about Easter is sunrise church services. I have always loved them!”

Mayor Jennifer Smith
“I love seeing the joy on the children’s faces and the excitement of them seeing what the Easter Bunny has delivered to them through the night. But more importantly, how my Savior gave his life for me! His sacrifice made it possible for me to have eternal life with him. His amazing love”

Boogie Bedgood
“One of my most memorable Easters was certainly last year. We had Easter as never before. The churches were closed. Families were all at their own homes due to Covid. I had always been very involved in my church this time of year as well as getting together with friends and family. Last year was very different. There would be no learning of new Easter songs, no new Easter “frock” no huge gathering of friends and family no big fixing of Easter lunch etc. There were none of the “frills”of Easter past.

This was a day that was set aside to reflect on the true reason we celebrate this most holy time. We sat in the quietness of our home and read The story of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and shared our gratitude for what Jesus had done and continues to do in our lives. We prayed and was so thankful that in such a dark time in our country we still had ‘The Light.” My heart felt something different that day. I suppose it was the joy of the resurrection power of Jesus Christ! What a day! You know it just doesn’t take much to celebrate if what you are celebrating is worth the celebration!”

The community churches will all be having Easter Sunday Services on April 4. The Goldonna Baptist Church will have a sunrise service that begins at 7:00am with a breakfast to follow and an egg hunt for the young children. The Easter service at River of Life Church will begin at 10:30am. The Goldonna Assembly of God Church will have their Easter service at 11:00. If you schedule it just right (leave early or show up a little late) you may be able to make all three services!
