Purvis church carries cross on Good Friday

PURVIS, MS (WDAM) - The congregation of one Purvis church spent Good Friday remembering the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in a special way. Many members of Purvis' Grace Covenant Church took part in a holiday event, carrying a cross to remember Christ's crucifixion.

Their route took them out of Purvis on Highway 11. Some Purvis police officers and Lamar County deputies gave them an escort.

"We just walk through the community and from downtown Purvis and people were out waving and telling us they appreciate what we're doing," said Scott Murphy, pastor of Grace Covenant Church. "But, it has nothing to do with us, it's got everything to do with honoring God," Murphy said.

The church will host a sunrise service Easter morning.
