KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (WGHP) — This time of year, a local church becomes a chocolate factory. 

First Presbyterian Church started its Easter Egg Ministry in 1991 to help pay off the mortgage on their new Fellowship Hall. The chocolate-covered eggs quickly became popular with the local community. 

This year, church members and volunteers will mix, hand roll, dip and wrap 60-thousand eggs. They come in two flavors, peanut butter and coconut.

The church sells them for a dollar a piece and the proceeds support church programs as well as fund a variety of community programs. 

The Egg Ministry’s given away hundreds of thousands of dollars over the decades, but church members save they have received so much in return too.
