Deemed the most glorious day of Christianity, churches across the nation celebrated Easter on Sunday.
In Meridian, Trinity Presbyterian Church began bright and early as it conducted a sunrise service to mark the occasion.
"This day, all the Gospel hinges on the Gospel of Jesus Christ," said Dr. Morris A. Taylor of Trinity.
Across town the message was the same, expressed through songs and a powerful message.
"Today we are here to celebrate Easter day and celebrate the resurrection of Christ," said Sharon Bramlett of Tamola Bethel United Methodist Church.
