Calvary Baptist Church of Winston-Salem will be closed on Easter Sunday.
A banner was placed on their building March 9 announcing the rare event.
Instead the church will be hosting a community event at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum with the goal of “bringing the diversity of our community together at one venue on a special day,” according to a press release from the church. The free event will offer doughnuts and drinks at the main entrance beginning at 9 a.m. and is open to everyone.
Rob Peters, Calvary’s senior pastor, will be answering the question “Who is Jesus?” in his sermon.
Translation opportunities will be available in Spanish, Deaf, Vietnamese, Karenni and Nepali.
