Pizza, bounce houses and community are what defined Crossroads Community Church’s second annual PrEaster Celebration on Saturday.

The church holds its Easter services at the Cougar Football stadium every year, which requires them to reserve the field on Saturday to set up.

“We just figured we could put all this space we have for a good cause,” said student ministry pastor Ed Boness.

Families were able to let this kids loose in the bounce houses, sit down for a picnic and just enjoy time outdoors.
