Helicopter egg drop scheduled in Joplin on Easter Sunday - KOAM TV 7

Helicopter egg drop scheduled in Joplin on Easter Sunday

Updated:
Local churches across the Four States are gearing up for some big Easter egg hunts this weekend.

Hope City Church in Joplin is taking a more non-traditional approach to the hunting.

Held at Victory Ministry and Sports Complex, ten thousand eggs filled with candy and toys will be dropped from a helicopter outside the building.

Church leaders say it has taken a lot of time and support to get the eggs ready.

The helicopter, flying in from Branson, will make more than one egg drop because the ten thousand eggs exceed the helicopter's weight limit.

Organizers say it's a fun way to bring families together and create a memorable experience for young kids.

"Our hope is that it will create a family environment that we can be a blessing to the community by creating some space for families to come and just experience a good time, be able to celebrate what we believe is one of the greatest things we get to celebrate each year, the resurrection of Christ," said Cody Walker, lead pastor.

Hope City Church services will be held at Victory Ministry and Sports Complex on Sunday morning at 9:30 and 11:00, with the helicopter egg drop between the two services around 10:45 a.m.
