Event description
Celebrate the joy of the Resurrection at Ghent Church, Messy Church-style!

About this Event

This month's Messy Church theme: "Always With Us"

Join us for an evening of fun and celebration! Bring your Easter baskets and cameras for the Egg Hunt in Stockley Gardens. You’ll also want to snap photos of your children visiting with baby animals from Teeny Tiny Farms (miniature goat, miniature sheep, miniature pig, bunnies, chicks, ducklings).

Afterwards, we’ll gather for an engaging celebration time and a family-style dinner. The animals will be on site until 6:30 pm. This event is free & open to the community.

This event will be held--RAIN OR SHINE! We will simply bring all the messy fun inside--Petting Zoo, Egg Hunt, and all--so please don't let inclement weather keep you away!

Why the name "Messy Church?" Because life is messy, and we are imperfect; Jesus spent his time with those who were seen as outsiders, rather than those who were seen as having orderly, perfect lives. The name doesn't mean that our building is a mess, or that we lack organization, quite the opposite in fact!

It does mean that we are open to letting God take control in how He will use the time with each person that participates, allowing learning to happen through an interactive approach that brings all generations together and uses hands-on activities to reinforce a monthly biblical theme.
