Here’s the video we showed this last weekend celebrating Easter at The Orchard.

Thousands of kids and parents came out for the Easter Egg Drop and more than 1600 people attended services.  Truly an amazing Easter weekend!

Easter At The Orchard… it’s an experience!  We had some phenomenal services Easter weekend hosted by a ton of volunteers who spent hours and hours working to create great environments.

Our Easter Egg Drop via helicopter was huge this year.  The weather cleared up and it turned out to be a great event.  LOTS of people for that.  We estimate around 3000 kids and parents gathering 20,000 eggs.  Our teams planned well and though we still had some unforeseen things happen, they were handled well and quickly.  Great job team!

While we had been worried about the weather OUTSIDE, we actually made it rain INSIDE over our stage!  Worked out well as a creative piece with the message and the music.  A great beginning to our series Smudged.

Here’s the music setlist from the weekend (with links to iTunes to purchase the original recordings):
