UNIVERSITY CENTER, MI (WNEM) -

This Saturday at 11 a.m., Life Church will be dropping 50,000 plastic Easter eggs filled with candy and minitoys over SVSU's Intramural Sports Fields.

This free regionwide event will also feature four giant inflatables, two professional balloon animal twisters, and free refreshments from Coca Cola (while supplies last).

"Life Church is in the middle of its monthlong Grand Opening," explained founding pastor Jonathan Herron. "We love area families and wanted to create a fun memorymaker for our region."

The Egg Drop site will be divided into three age appropriate fields for children ages 2 through 12.

Church volunteers are planning for thousands of people to descend upon SVSU, making registration of each participating child a priority. As parents register their kids, they will receive a colored wristband granting them free admission to the festivities and indicating which field to line up at.

"The Egg Drop is one of the many reasons why our family is excited to be part of Life Church," noted SVSU student Krystal Rajewski. "Life Church feels refreshing to me. This church doesn't judge or engage in hypocrisy, its just full of real people trying to follow a real God."

Egg Drop preregistration is now open until Thursday at LifeChurchMichigan.com.

Registration the day of the event opens at 10 a.m., with the helicopter dropping eggs at 11 a.m. sharp.

The event is free, although SVSU does charge $5 for parking during this event. Details on the egg drop can be found online at LifeChurchMichigan.com and Facebook.com/LifeChurchMichigan.
