Modesto's faithful rejoice on Easter

local@modbee.comMarch 31, 2013 

— Families joined Modesto area churches for song and prayer on an Easter Sunday that was at times somber and celebratory, with weather to match.

Pastor Mark Krieger delivered the Easter sermon at Modesto Covenant Church, leading churchgoers in prayer. The group Bell Heirs performed "Rejoice, He Has Risen" for the packed house.

Sunday started out sunny, with clouds looming on the horizon for much of the day. The pleasant weather gave way to thunder and rain later in the evening.
