Reaching out with Bay Hills Community Church for Easter weekend

CMT Ministries had the opportunity to visit their new friends at Bay Hills Community Church in El Sobrante over the Easter weekend and what a weekend it was!

On Saturday Bay Hills hosted their annual Easter community outreach event, the Spring Fling, featuring jumpers, games, snacks and even a petting zoo! The CMT Ministry Team was invited to come and share their current program, "You Are Special," a 35-minute program featuring storytelling, audience participation, puppetry, blacklight, music, illusions and much more. The story closes with a powerful reminder of just how great God's love is for us and we encouraged families to remember the real reason we celebrate Easter.

On Sunday the team made the trek back to El Sobrante to teach the children how to make their own "sock buddy" puppets and techniques for puppet manipulation. The excited and eager children were a great fun to work with and their "out-of-the-box" creativity was inspiring.

Perhaps what was most powerful for the team was when we spoke with our host, Pastor Liinda Vannoy-Castillo, and thanked her for the opportunity. She spoke clearly to the team and reminded us to never forget that what we do has the potential to change lives, and who knew how many lives could have been changed over the weekend.

"What an awesome team, you ministered to my very soul. Kids came to know Jesus this weekend. Thank you for sharing your time & talents with us! We were blessed and next time, i'm snagging some of your worker's shoes-lol" - Pr. Linda

We are so grateful for the opportunity we had to spend Easter weekend reaching and teaching with the amazing Pr. Linda and the wonderful community at Bay Hills Community Church. They remain in our prayers as they diligently work to serve the little ones.
