Thousands celebrate Easter in the Pine Belt

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of residents celebrated Easter Sunday through sunrise services and egg hunts.

Most churches in the Pine Belt  saw a spike in attendance on Easter Sunday; as it is the day where Christians observe Jesus' death and resurrection.

"It's a day of realizing how Jesus did and still can change our story. No matter who you are or what you've done he can change your life," said Jeff Clark, Pastor at First Hattiesburg.
