Members of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Youth Group will tend to your grounds for a fee as they attempt to raise funds to attend the National Youth Gathering in Houston, Texas in July.

Youth from St. Paul’s Lutheran Church will participate in helping the Easter Bunny as part of a fundraiser for a trip to Houston.

Families will have the chance to wake up on April 16 and 17 with a visit from the youth group, who are trying to raise funds for the National Youth Gathering in Houston, Texas.

Students will deliver the eggs on Friday April 15 and Saturday April 16.

The eggs will be stuffed with sweets and trinkets. The cost of the service will be $20 for 24 eggs, $30 for 48 eggs and $50 for 96 eggs.

Families can also order an Easter balloon basket that looks like a hot air balloon for $25. Families can also have the egg basket delivered to their door.

“Young people will stuff the eggs with candy and trinkets,” said Jolene Hays, who helps lead the fundraiser. “They will come out in the dark and hide the eggs. They can put them where the family wants them.

This is the first year St. Paul has done this as a fundraiser. In the past they have done flocking yards but stopped after COVID.

“We flocked for a few years, but then COVID hit,” Hays said. “The kids are so excited about hiding things and the fellowship of being with each other.

The funds will help 18 of the youth group members attend the National Youth Gathering in Houston during the month of July. They will take a bus tour with students from Ida Grove and Battle Creek, totaling 36 during the trip.

The national convention is held every four years, and groups from St. Paul have traveled to Minneapolis, St. Louis and New Orleans in the past.

“It’s about growing their faith,” Hays said. “More than 20,000 people will be present. This is an opportunity to meet other young people who have the same state of mind.

“During their stay, they will do service projects and have a church in the stadium.”
