Dougherty County Kiwanis gathered for a prayer breakfast on this Good Friday. It was held at the Covenant Presbyterian church in Albany.

During the breakfast Kiwanis members ate, sang hymns, and listened to a sermon. This celebration was to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

But members say they're so glad the story doesn't end there. "The story is just beginning there. The world put Christ in the ground and thought that was the end. But it was just the beginning, because in three days he rose from the grave and the rest is history," said Larry Price of Dougherty County Kiwanis Club.

The Dougherty County Kiwanis Club supports all churches of Christian Faith in the community regardless of denomination.
