Share the Hope

We are gearing up for our Easter celebration!

We encourage you to extend an invitation to your family, friends, and neighbors who don’t have a church home.  Share the HOPE you have found through Jesus at Richwoods. We will have six Easter services and an Easter Egg Hunt hosted at Parkway Campus on Saturday, April 8!

Each week it takes hundreds of volunteers to make weekend services happen and we will have additional serving opportunities throughout April – especially Easter weekend, April 15 & 16.  Let’s Share the HOPE together!


Richwoods is hosting an Easter Egg hunt the Saturday (April 8) before Easter Weekend to reach out to the children and their families in the Pekin community. If you want to be a part of making the Easter Egg Hunt happen, let us know by using the link to the form below.

Here are a few areas that we need help with:

Candy: We have over 2000 small plastic Easter Eggs to fill with candy.  We will be collecting small, individually wrapped candy between March 18 and March 26th.  Hershey’s Kisses, Mini Chocolate Eggs, or Mini Peanut Butter Cups are a few suggestions. Place bagged candy in the bins at each campus.

Egg Stuffing: On Saturday, April 1 we need a team of people to help stuff over 2000 eggs with candy and load them into boxes to be sent to the Parkway Campus. This will take place at 10am at Knoxville Campus.

The Event: The event is at 10:00 am, but we will need help before and after setting up and tearing down.  The form linked below will have information about specific needs for help.


We are offering two additional services on Easter Weekend to be able to Share the HOPE with the people in our communities who don’t know the Hope found in Jesus. In order to offer these additional services, we will need an estimated 100 extra volunteers.

If you are not currently serving in a weekend ministry, but are able and willing to meet this one-time need, we would love to have you join the Easter team. We have opportunities for warm smiles and willing hearts in every ministry from serving communion to greeting at the doors to Sharing the HOPE in Children’s Ministry.

They are available at the Connection Point.
