Rock Ranch Events: Free Easter Eggstravaganza, R.U.S.H. Weekend

The Rock Ranch "Easter Eggstravaganza" April 4 - 11am to 2pm

It is springtime again and The Rock Ranch is becoming green and beautiful. We'd like to invite your family and friends out to the ranch to enjoy the spring weather on the Cathy family's 1250-acre ranch dedicated to wholesome family fun. The Rock Ranch "Easter Eggstravaganza" will be held Saturday April 4 from 11am to 2pm. Admission is free!

For this special event, you may bring a picnic lunch, or you may choose to purchase lunch at The Chuck Wagon Cafe' (concessions area). We'll be serving hot dog meals and Chick-fil-A Ice Dream.

Over 16,000 Easter Eggs will be hidden and there will be egg hunts for 5 age divisions: Under 2, Age 2 and 3, age 4 to 6, age 7 to 12 and age 13 and up (adults are welcome to hunt eggs).

Be sure to bring your camera to take family photos with The Easter Bunny. Children's Book author and story teller Harvey Wilson will be providing entertainment as he shares "bunny tales" (Easter themed stories). The Rock Country Store (gift shop) will be open and, in addition to toys and gifts, it now features a year 'round Christmas store.

We hope your family will be able to visit The Rock Ranch and Celebrate this most important holiday.

R.U.S.H. Weekend

Another exciting event for 2009 is R.U.S.H Weekend; a 2-day conferance for youth groups. This event will be held on Friday May 22 and Saturday May 23 at The Rock Ranch and it will feature keynote speaker Mark Hall of the band Casting Crowns.

R.U.S.H. stands for Reaching Unchurched Students for Him and one of the purposes of this event is to allow students involved in church activities to reach out to their freinds who are not plugged in to a church family to show them the fun and enrichment a church family can provide. The event is not sponsored by a particular church but its goal is to encourage youth to become excited about the concept of a "church family" and seek involvment in youth activities in their community.

This event will provide informative break out sessions with motivational and inspirational speakers, 3 sessions of praise and worship music led by the band "Fee" and fun activities including a rock climbing wall, paintball, flag football, 3 on 3 basketball and more. A registration cost of $29 per student includes the 3 sessions over 2 days, meals, musical performances, all activities and a t-shirt. Youth groups interested in registering for this event should contact 1-866-991-RUSH. Additional information is available at rushministries.com.

Gates will open for the final session at 6pm on Saturday May 23. This session includes professional sound and lighting and praise music led by the band "Fee".
