LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – COVID-19 has created some challenges for churches with people staying home to help rid the virus.  Last Sunday morning, during the live stream, East La Follette Baptist’s Pastor Zach said that he missed seeing his church family, missed them being at church in their normal seat but most of all their smiling faces.

So, on Easter Sunday morning 2020, nearly 100 smiling faces were at the morning service, maybe not in body, but in spirit and pictures.

WLAF’s Charlie Hutson said, “I guess that you could say that it was a picture perfect service.”  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 04/13/2020-6AM)
