While Easter services were the primary reason to dress up and head to church Sunday for the young members of Cardinal Drive Church of Christ in Rolling Meadows, there was a secondary reason to look forward to the trip: one last chance in 2019 to hunt for Easter eggs.

About 70 children from the church and surrounding community gathered on the church lawn then dashed out for 2,000 eggs filled with treats and other goodies. There were a handful of golden eggs, which kids could turn in for an additional prize.

"Just to have the community here with us and celebrating is an exciting part of who we are", said Rob Carris, youth and family minister at the church.

The fun wasn't over once all the eggs were scooped up. After the hunt, kids took part in a coloring contest and cookie decorating contest. "It's a good day", Carris said.
