Over one-thousand people stopped by The House of Grace's Easter egg hunt Saturday afternoon.
Church members hid 10-thousand Easter eggs in front of the church for children to find, and no egg was left unturned. New church members signed their kids up for summer camp, enjoyed free hot dogs, drinks, and candy, and mingled with members of the community.
"My favorite part of today was getting all the Easter eggs and getting the candy in them," said Easter egg hunter, Haley Clapper.
Dunlap says he came up with the Easter egg hunt idea because he wanted to do something good for the community and wanted to make a difference. As a new church in Zanesville, Dunlap says he's happy to have had such a big turn out and is appreciative to everyone that helped out.
"There's been a lot of them come by and tell me they'll see me in the morning at service at 10:30 a.m. I'm hoping the parking lot is packed like it was today. A lot of them have told me that they're looking for a place like this, it helps with the community, they want to get involved also. So I'm excited, I believe we're going to be packed in the morning."
The House of Grace will be having Easter mass at 10:30 a.m. Sunday morning, and all are welcome to join.
