Combining Faith & Fun
Easter is a holiday that combines the joys of warmer spring weather, celebrating a new sowing season, and for Christians it is rejoicing the resurrection of Jesus Christ, absolving sin. Activities in Meridian last Saturday showed that combination to a “T.” Several churches held sunrise services. The First Baptist Church of Meridian invited everyone out to a children’s Easter Extravaganza with a hot dog lunch, snow cones and all sorts of outdoor games. And there was a special sermon, reminding those present why Easter is celebrated.
