Thousands celebrate Easter at the Civic Center

RAPID CITY S.D. (KEVN) -. Thousands of other believers spent the morning celebrating Easter at the Civic Center, a tradition in the Black Hills for seven years now.

Fountain Springs Church of Rapid City filled the Barnett Arena for two Easter services Sunday morning, one at 9 a.m. and another at 11 a.m. Lead Pastor David Kinnan says his goal with these services is to be a church not only in the Black Hills but for the people of the Black Hills. People were lifting their voices and their lights Sunday morning and tuning into a message about overcoming.

"Our message has been all about what Easter represents, Jesus overcoming death but that also means that we become overcomers when we believe in him and love him. We're hoping people today recognize that there's hope. In a world that feels like there's not alot of hope in our hearts and in our souls and we want them to get that message," Pastor David Kinnan said.

The little ones were also pretty engaged during the services. You can see them here enjoying their own Easter "Eggstravaganza" where kids were having fun and learning at the same time.
