Look forward to faith

With the holidays long past and the winter season still hovering, church-goers may be looking forward to the many faith-centered activities that start in the spring.

Pastor Kim Pope-Seiberling, of First United Methodist in Wapakoneta, said there are exciting changes at her church this year.

"We just really want to reach out to the community and let people know that they are welcome here, and their kids are welcome here," Pope-Seiberling said.  "We're becoming very child and family oriented."

First United Methodist, as well as other Christian-denomination churches, are undergoing Lenten services and are preparing for Holy Week leading up to Easter on Sunday, April 20.

The church is hosting an Easter egg hunt for the community on Saturday, April 19.

"We're really excited. We're having a petting zoo," Pope-Seiberling said. "We're hoping to have a ton of baby animals, which will be a lot of fun."
