Don't Go To Church This Easter - Easter Egg Carnival

You might be wondering why we are asking you NOT to go to church this Easter. At Encounter, we believe that we are most like Jesus when we serve others by giving ourselves away. We're not so much about "doing church" as much as we are about "being the Church."

That's why if you're connected with Encounter, we're asking you to participate in our Good Friday FWD gathering instead and spend Easter Day serving individuals and families in our community through the largest Easter Egg Hunt & Carnival in the North Helena Valley.


At Encounter, we have a unique opportunity to participate in and volunteer for the largest Easter Egg Hunt & Carnival in the North Helena Valley on Easter Sunday afternoon.

Last year there were over 1,000 people who came and enjoyed the day with their family. And this year will be another opportunity to share God's love and serve Helena families in a fun and rewarding way.


Come be a vital part of serving an often overlooked portion of the Helena community by giving of your time on Easter Day. There will be kid's bouncers, a rock wall, cotton candy, snow cones, carnival games, face painting, and several Easter Egg Hunt areas for different ages.

While this event is organized by Encounter's sponsor church, Big Sky Fellowship, our participation will make this event a multi-church effort.

We had a number of conversations at the carnival last year opening doors for both Encounter and building relationships with people in our community.


There is no cost for us to contribute our time and effort to this community impact event, so I encourage everyone to participate. Let us know how you can help now! Sign up by clicking the button below and indicating how you can be involved. We'll follow up with you within 24 hours.

Here is how you can provide needed help:
— Setup @ 2:30pm (set up equipment, canopies, booths)
— Running a booth @ 4:00pm (cotton candy, sno cones, face painting)
— Being a runner @ 4:00pm (help wherever needed)
— Trash cleanup @ 4:00pm (pick up candy & food wrappers)
— Tear-down @ 5:15pm (pack up booths & equipment)
