Ready, set, hunt

Christians get ready to celebrate the resurrection of Christ

Mason Purnell, 6, leads the charge at the 17th annual Family Easter Egg Hunt and Carnival presented by Realtors Dave and Sue Flashberger in Val Vista Park.

"We had approximately 150 children," reported Sue Flashberger. "A good time was had by all."

Greet the dawn at Shadow Cliffs Regional Recreation Area at an Easter Sunrise Service, which will begin at 6 a.m. Sunday.

This year's service will be a reenactment of a late 1800s worship performed by Gen. Pleasonton (the Rev. Jim Meek of the Livermore Trinity Baptist Church) near the lake around a campfire and tents. Everyone is invited to dress in boots, hats and bonnets of that era. The service will include group singing, then a walk to the lake to hear a brief sermon by the Rev. Mike Barris of Pleasanton Centerpointe Presbyterian Church.

Coffee and donuts will be served. Parking is free, with the gates opening at 5:30 a.m. In case of heavy rain, the service will be held at Pleasanton Centerpointe Presbyterian Church, 3410 Cornerstone Court.

Centerpointe Church will offer three worship services to celebrate Easter Sunday.

Worship services will be at 9 a.m. (blended) and 10:30 a.m. (contemporary) on the Centerpointe campus, 3410 Cornerstone Court. Pastor Mike Barris will deliver the message of encouragement and hope at each service.

Leading up to Easter at Centerpointe, there will be daily mediation and communion services at 9 a.m. in the worship center.

The Good Friday service is at 7 p.m. Friday.

For further information, please see the Centerpointe web site at or call 925-846-4436.
