Vevay UMC sets Easter events


Everyone is invited to attend a luncheon with the Easter bunny on Saturday, March 30th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Vevay United Methodist Church on the corner of Main and Union streets in Vevay. The Easter Bunny will have free treat bags for each child attending. Families are welcome to bring their cameras to snap pictures of their child/grandchild with the Easter Bunny.

If you forget your camera or would like the bunny helpers to take pictures of your child/grandchild with the Easter Bunny, there is a small cost of $2 per picture. (These are digital photos and take a couple minutes to process.)

Lunch is served at a cost of $2 for each adult or child and includes hot dog, chips, cookie or cupcake and a drink. Chili and cheese is available for the hot dogs at no additional cost.

The area United Methodist churches have announced their upcoming services as follows:

Maundy Thursday, March 28th, at 6 p.m. at East Enterprise United Methodist Church.

Immediately following the Sunrise Service the community is invited to the Vevay United Methodist Church for the annual United Methodist Men’s Breakfast. The men will be preparing and serving scrambled eggs, ham, toast, biscuits/gravy, juice, milk and coffee. Come early, share great fellowship, good food and watch the men work hard.
