SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

St. John Baptist Church - The Mighty Fortress held an Easter service in Forsyth Park Sunday.

For about six years members of the church have held this special service in the park. It has become such a tradition that folks in the community look forward to it each year.

Dr. George Lee III says this service is not just for christians, but for anyone choosing to celebrate life.

"Through all of this, with everything that's going on in our world, you know, that there is life. you know, even if you don't believe in Jesus Christ, you know believe in life. That life is worth living, regardless of how bad the situation may be, life is worth living and you can always get back up again." said Lee, Minster of St. John Baptist Church - The Mighty Fortess.

After the service, the group held a procession including live animals, in which they walked a few blocks back to their church for a second service.
