Helicopter Drops Easter Eggs for Children

Posted: Updated:
The sky is the limit for a church in Panama City this Easter. This year they took the art of Easter egg hunts to a whole new level.  

About 500 children at Bear Creek Assembly of God Church eagerly await their Easter surprise.

A helicopter dropping more than 5,000 eggs swooped in giving the children a hunt they won't soon forget.

Once they hit the ground it was game on, the kids wasting no time searching them out and Pastor Tony Teas says it makes him happy to see the surprise and smile on all of their faces.

"It makes my heart swell, I'm just glad to see that the community would come out and we can have fun together, love on each other, and just a safe environment where they can come out and have fun, but it did, it was well worth the while to see the faces of those children," Teas said.

Pastor Teas says the church does a lot of free events like this one for the community because they enjoy giving back.
