About 30 children rushed the playground Sunday morning at Faith Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights in search of eggs containing treats and other goodies as part of the church's annual Easter Sunday Eggstravaganza.

Preceding the egg hunt, kids ages 2-12 worked on religious crafts and listened to preschool director Jori Reuter read "The Easter Story" by Patricia A. Pingry.

"The children are usually very excited about the egg hunt and Eggstravaganza," Reuter said. "Last year we opened it up to both members and the community."

The children wore their Sunday best, some holding stuffed rabbits and lambs, as they looked for the 850 plastic eggs placed behind bushes, on playground slides and under park benches.

When it was over, they quickly opened the eggs to find candy, stickers, crosses and bubbles.

Families also were invited to share in Easter Breakfast sponsored by the church Men's Club.
