Easter Weekend on the Beach

This weekend is EASTER! Bunnies, chicks and multi-colored eggs immediately fill our heads along with jelly beans and yummy sweet treats.  My most cherished childhood moments (other than Christmas) is waking up Easter morning to find what the Easter bunny left me! We of course quickly got dressed and made our way to church to remember why we were celebrating.  I have found that living near the beach has made all holidays better.  We now have Easter egg hunts in the sand and even worship ocean side.

Madeira Beach has two great churches in its city limits, Cross Bridge Church and Church by the Sea. Both of these churches have sea side services offered for Easter Sunday as well as traditional services.  Here are the details:
