The town isn’t going to do it.

The Chamber of Commerce used to do it but they are now defunct.

On occasion and individual or two might do it.

Do what?

Put together a community Easter Egg Hunt. But not this year, that is until a few days ago when the Missions Committee of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Burns Flat, Oklahoma said, “We can do that.”

In those few words from a committee purposed to take the real message of Easter to the community and the world, the pagan festival of hunting colored eggs placed generally in plain sight will continue once again in 2014.

Over the past few days, Heather Spence, Victoria Glover, and Tom Collins have been asking community organizations and businesses to support this event. Those supporters will be mentioned in a later article.

Burns Flat City Park

(Bring Your Own Basket)

Notice to all participants and their parents: The pastor of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church will be present at this public pagan pageant giving away the Gospel of John. The candy and prizes that the kids will take home will last for a while, but the bread of life and living water contained within this gospel will last forever.

Don’t forget to come and celebrate the real Easter this Sunday with your fellow believers.

The Cumberland Presbyterian Church will hold a sunrise service at 6:30 a.m. and a traditional worship service at 11:00 a.m. this Sunday.

This Saturday come and let the young children seek and find colored eggs at the city park.

This Sunday, come and celebrate the resurrection of the Lord!
