Grace UMC in Telford held a socially distanced Easter Drive-Through Parade on Saturday, March 27, from 1 to 3 PM in our church lot. This colorful celebration event was free for all who attended. We handed out "He Is Risen" plastic bags with church fliers inside at the first stop, where the pastor greeted all visitors in their cars. They were instructed to drive from table to table to acquire items for their bags, including a cross made of chocolate , colorful jelly beans, a craft, and coloring books.
Also, a local Girl Scout troop that we host at our church attended and participated. We handed out 170 bags to the community. See Photos
