EUGENE, Ore. - Kids gathered at Marist High School on Saturday, March 31, for Joy Church's annual "Easter Egg Hunt." It's a little unique because the candy drops out of a helicopter.

Staff with Joy Church said they love putting on the event to get the word out about their facility, promote great environments in the community, and let people know about their Easter service the next day.

"Doing this event, for us, is just to say to our community, hey, we love you, we're here, it's a no-pressure environment. Just come, have fun with your family, and see candy drop from the sky," said Jacob Schmelzer, the lead pastor with Joy Church.

Schmelzer said he looks forward to seeing this event grow more and more every year.
