Church Celebrates Easter Weekend in Unique Way

Meridian, Miss. A Meridian church kicked off Easter activities in a big way.

Freedom Rock Christian Fellowship church members say the theme this year is "A Weekend To Remember." Friday night, members acted in a drama, exploring what would happen if Jesus Christ were put on trial in the 21st Century. Tommy Winston says the weekend activities are a community outreach.

"We decided to take church outside the general walls, and present it to as many people as possible, with an attempt to make sure everyone had an experience of Christ." explained Winston. "In this season, we understand that Christ died for all of us, so we want to share that experience with as many people as possible."

The drama was followed by comedian "Big Walt." Activities continue Saturday with an Easter Egg Hunt at Q.V. Sykes Park, and Easter worship on Sunday.
