Village Church in Rancho Santa Fe to host annual ‘EGG-Stravaganza’ for families

The Village Church in Rancho Santa Fe will host its annual “EGG-stravaganza,” an exciting event for children and their families featuring an Easter egg hunt, petting zoo, crafts and light refreshments at the church campus — 6225 Paseo Delicias — on Saturday, March 19, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Admission is free.

“Our annual EGG-stravaganza welcomes nearly 200 children and parents for fun and fellowship. This is a wonderful way to celebrate the joy of Jesus Christ and the hope of the Easter resurrection,” said the Rev. Dr. Jack Baca, senior pastor of the Village Church.

Community members are also welcome to attend Holy Week festivities beginning March 20 with Palm Sunday services at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. followed by a Maundy Thursday service with the Lord’s Supper and Service of Darkness on March 24 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. The holiest week in the Christian calendar culminates March 27 with three services on Easter starting at 7 a.m. with an outdoor, sunrise service followed by services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Childcare for infants through kindergarteners will be provided on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and on Easter at the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services.

“Easter and Holy Week services are a time when Christians focus on the power and grace of God to resurrect Jesus from the dead so that everyone can follow him for life in the newness promised on that first Easter morning,” added Rev. Baca.

All activities will take place on the campus of the Village Church located at 6225 Paseo Delicias, Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. 92067. For more information and directions, visit or call (858) 756-2441.
