Kids Had a Blast Serving at the Bunny Bash 2017

By Victoria Paul on April 13, 2017

Bloomingdale Church loves being involved serving our community. Our volunteers provided a workforce at the Annual Bunny Bash and Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Lions Club and Bloomingdale Park District.

Kids received a balloon animal made just for them, got their faces painted, played in three different bouncy houses, and enjoyed a gourmet ice cream sundae (donated by Graham’s Fine Chocolates & Ice Cream) with lots of whipped cream and sprinkles. The Easter Bunny made an appearance and took pictures with the children as well. Thank you, Bloomingdale Park District for letting us participate with you and the Lions Club in the 2017 Bunny Bash.

How does KidsQuest celebrate the Spring? By packing all the fun of Day Camp into one morning! Spring Fest is a free annual event where kids ages 3 – 6th grade can come and have a fun, safe, and friend-filled morning. Highlights from last year include a building-wide scavenger hunt for “lost sheep,” face painting, and a message and skit given by our own Youth Pastor, Nate Kugel, and the Youth Group teens. This year, there is a professional Christian magician coming to teach kids a Bible lesson using practical illusions, as well as carnival games and crafts!

Bloomingdale Church strives to be a safe and welcoming place for your family. Each child must be checked in and out by an authorized adult. Volunteers must have attended Bloomingdale Church for at least 6 months and must be a NextGen Approved Volunteer.
