LGBTQ Affirming Churches & Easter Egg Hunts

March 2024 Beau Knowles LGBT Knox LGBT Businesses

As a member of the LGBTQ Community, I often hear that individuals and families do not feel accepted by traditional churches. I haven't had that experience in many years but that is because I know where to go to find acceptance and support. Below is my list of LGBTQ Family Friendly Easter Egg hunts and a link to my list LGBTQ Supportive and Accepting Churches. Find a place for your spiritual home that speaks best to you.

Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday, March 31st Easter Egg hunt 12:00pm - 12:30pm We will leave the sanctuary following our multigenerational Sunday service to gather on the side yard OUTSIDE of the playground gate (at the end of the building closest to Kingston Pike) for the hunt.  This egg hunt is appropriate for all ages.  This is a food/candy-free egg hunt. Bring a basket if you like, but we’ll have plenty of bags available for hunting and carrying prizes. 2931 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN   @TVUUC

Church of the Savior  Sunday, March 31st Easter Egg Hunt From Associate Pastor Tonya Barnette "We are an Open and Affirming congregation! Bring your children, their friends, neighbors! If it's triggering for you to walk into a church, just walk straight out to the grassy area and leave after the event. You don't have to stay for the Easter service...we just want lots of little ones to enjoy the morning"  COS Youth will hide the eggs at 9:45. The Easter Egg Hunt will start at 10:00 AM (or a little later), with a headstart for little ones! Bring neighbors, friends, cousins! Even if you don't have little ones, it's fun to watch them run around and then open their eggs. 934 N Weisgarber Rd, Knoxville, TN @ChurchoftheSavior
