Abiding Love Lutheran Church

Abiding Love Lutheran Church in Cape Coral is hosting Easter for Kids on Saturday, March 16, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Your children, ages 3-11, will be learning the classic story "The Three Trees." The trees all have dreams of what they want to become, but they learn that God's plans for them are even better than they could have ever dreamed. Children will enjoy singing, doing crafts, a free lunch, an Easter egg hunt, and also hear about what Jesus did for us with His life when he rose on Easter morning. The children will share their joy of Easter with a closing program for their family and friends to end the day.
