Easter egg hunts bring Odessa families together

Dozens of families enjoyed their Easter Sunday taking part in the tradition of hunting Easter eggs with their children in Odessa.

At Purple Sage Park, organizers from the Life Change Baptist brought out several thousand eggs spreading them across the park.

Pastor Michael Courtney says the activity gives them an excellent chance to connect with families.

"Well its a great opportunity for us to get outside the church and be in the community and share Jesus Christ with them and the meaning of Easter," says Courtney.

Across town, another Easter egg hunt was held by the Harvest Time Church at a home off California Avenue.

Organizers from the church like Pastor Darrell Trout also worked with the High Sky Children's Ranch to give more than 20 displaced children a chance to search for Easter eggs as well.

"Including everyone is what the whole total, the total package of what being Christian and  of what church is about," says Pastor Trout.
