Churches across the nation are hoping to draw in worshipers to Easter Sunday services with the growing popularity of helicopter egg drops.
According to The Roys Report, churches all over, megachurches and small, have planned the novelty experience of a helicopter dropping Easter eggs from the sky.
“We’re out in the middle of a rural area, miles from anything civilized,” Pastor Gary Stewart of Beaverdam Baptist Church in Virginia told The Roys Report (TRR). “But we like to think big and trust God for him to give us his vision and endeavors to get engaged in.”
Beaverdam Baptist Church has a weekly attendance of about 250, but when a church member called an experienced helicopter pilot, who was also a friend, the church was able to arrange the large-scale event for free.
“We’re excited to invite people out to have a good time with their kids,” Stewart told The Roys Report. “Everybody who joins us will hear about the true meaning of Easter as we share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them.”
On average, egg drops cost about $400 to $800, a spokesperson for Platinum Helicopters told The Roys Report. Platinum Helicopters has about half a dozen egg drop events booked this Easter season.
