Hundreds of people flocked to St. Andrew United Methodist Church, just north of Marietta, on March 30 to enjoy Breakfast With the Bunny and participate in the church’s annual Easter Egg Scramble. A pancake breakfast was served with all the fixin’s at the Keheley Center where the bunny was on hand for photos with children.

Funds raised at the breakfast help support the church’s missions. For example, 75 youth and adults from St. Andrew UMC will be going on Mission Trips to Sevierville, Tenn.; Panama City Beach, Fla.; Bayou La Batre, Ala.; and the mountains of Appalachia this summer.

The crowd continued to build as time for the Easter Egg Scramble approached. By the time St. Andrew UMC’s Director of Children’s Ministries Regina Haller signaled for participants to start filling their baskets, more than 200 children stood poised to gather their share of the more than 5,000 eggs that covered the ground where the church has its pumpkin patch every October.

“St. Andrew thanks all of our members and volunteers who helped the Easter Bunny fill and put all those eggs out for the children to enjoy,” Haller said. “The Easter Egg Scramble is always a lot of fun for children, parents and grandparents alike. The memories last a lifetime.”
