GCI’s Tucson congregation held its second annual Easter-themed children’s outreach on April 7. The event was led by Pastor Tom and Michelle Landess, and the congregation’s outreach coordinator, Nanette Krestel. 29 guests (adults, teens and children) attended along with members of the congregation.
The event began with a short message from Pastor Tom and music led by Michelle; both pointing to Jesus’ resurrection. Then there were five workshops where members mingled with the children, followed by an Easter egg hunt. The day ended with a meal where members sat at each table to fellowship with the guests.
At the event, a table with free resources was manned by Pastor Ted and Lila Millhuff who answered questions from adults and children. Many told their stories, giving them opportunity to share their struggles with others.
