Holiest day on the Christian calendar

By Heather Sawaski

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- It's the Holiest day on the Christian calendar. Easter is when Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead after being crucified.

Sunday morning, service at Grace United Church of Christ in Wausau was just one of the many celebrating this time of hope, rebirth, and the forgiveness of sins. The pastor says while Easter is the foundation of faith, Christ's resurrection should be lived out everyday of the year, not just Easter Sunday.

Pastor Wayne Drueck explained, "Martin Luther said that it doesn't matter whether or not Jesus Christ was raised from the dead if he wasn't risen for you. So we try to make it personal so it's something we understand everyday, not just one day a year."

The congregation also enjoyed special Easter songs performed by the church brass and choir groups.
