Easter Breakfast Returns!
With Lent upon us, we’re already planning for the upcoming Easter Breakfast, probably our biggest church meal of the entire year! As many of you know, the breakfast serves as a fundraiser for youth events, including the National Youth Gathering in New Orleans in 2024 among others. Two breakfasts will be hosted on Easter Sunday this year, one following Sunrise service at 7:30 a.m., and another at 9:30 a.m.
When we brought the breakfast back last year, after a hiatus during the pandemic, we continued this tradition, albeit with a few changes, turning it into something more of a “group effort.” While the middle and high schoolers are still primarily serving the meal, we’re asking again this year for some additional help! Given how large the size of the meal is, and how much there is to operate in terms of appliances in the kitchen, we could really use your help!
We understand everyone has their own plans for Easter, so helpers usually just pop into the kitchen when they can and work till they have to go somewhere else! We’ll start prep around 6:30 a.m. and finish up right before the 10:45 a.m. service, so if you can help during any window of that time, we’d be grateful! Zach will also be setting up tables and table cloths for the event the day before Easter (Saturday, April 8) at noon, and anyone is welcome to help if they like!
Another way to help is through our returning “take & prep” casserole pans! Later this month, we’ll place some small baking pans in the narthex with instructions on them for how to make a cold casserole. Simply take a pan, fill it with the ingredients, and bring it back to us before the breakfast (they can be placed in the fridge in the kitchen). Then on Easter morning, we’ll put those in the oven so they’re ready to eat! The casseroles are a favorite of the breakfast, and a great way to partake in some fun food prep.
The size and scope of the Eater breakfast seems to grow a bit every year, so any help is appreciated. Contact Zach if you’d like to help, or if you have any questions. We are so excited to serve this meal once again this year and enjoy some wonderful fellowship time with all of you on this celebratory day!
