MIDLAND, GA (WTVM) - Solid Rock Church in Midland hosted a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt for children Friday evening.
The Easter egg hunt took place after a special service at the church. More than 200 children participated. There was a petting zoo and Solid Rock also provided food and games.
Good Friday is Christian holiday to remember Jesus dying on the cross. Pastor Jay Bailey said Friday night’s fun is just part of what the church is doing for Holy Week.
"I think it's an incredible thing, first of all, to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ, focus in on the cross. It’s very important to do it with family and friends, especially tying good memories for our kids,” said Bailey.
Many churches in the Chattahoochee Valley, including Solid Rock, are adding extra times on Sunday to attend Easter services.
