Community Easter Celebration Held at Forsyth Park

DOWNTOWN SAVANNAH -

Not everyone felt the need to step into a church this Sunday, some folks celebrated Easter at Forsyth Park for the annual community Easter celebration put on by St. John Baptist Church.

"We always do this every year so that we can communicate the message to our community that Jesus has risen," said Rev. Dr. Adegboye Adeyemo

And it was quite the celebration and officials say this is a chance to remind everyone of what's important.

"With everything that's going on in our world that there is life even if you don't believe in Jesus Christ believing life and that life is worth living. Regardless of how bad your situation maybe life is worth living and you can always get back up again," said Pastor, Dr. George Lee III.

From music to prayers--people seemed to be having a good time enjoying the outdoor mass.

"I think the service is great it's always great to wake up on Easter and come out in fellowship with a group of people with the same kind of mindset so it was a good opportunity to come out here and praise God," said worshiper, Damen Scott.

And praise god they did!

Dozens of followers and passersby took part in the assembly.

"I think the mission of the services to meet the people where they are and not necessarily stay inside the confines of the building come out to the community show the community what we do as a church and how to spread the word in the community it's a good opportunity do that," said Scott.

These folks so you don't necessarily need a church to get gods word out into the community. That's why for the past five years they held the celebration Forsyth Park.

"It's a joy just to be in the neighborhood with the community in a bring everybody together for the word of prayer and just to show the love of god," said Lee.
