The West Grove United Methodist Church was rocking with games, stories and refreshments on Saturday in what was a very relaxed and entertaining Easter egg hunt.

Unlike nearby hunts, there was no rush for eggs, and every child received prizes. Volunteer Melissa Jones, who was helping out with registration, said she likes the church's Easter event. She added that her child always seemed to end up eggless in the other more aggressive events.

At West Grove Methodist, the children got plastic eggs and received coupons for trinkets and jelly beans.

Because of damp and chilly weather, the whole event was held inside.

The games were simple and appropriate for the hundreds of young attendees.

There were a bouncing cage, sack races, beanbag throws, crafts and face painting.
