EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Thousands packed Roberts Stadium for a massive Easter service.

The crowd started arriving early Sunday morning.

The service was presented by Crossroads Christian Church.

Thousands crowded into the arena to hear the Easter message and enjoy music from a band.

Organizers said it's a way to reach out to the community.

"It's designed really as a community outreach for the Easter service for those that perhaps don't have a regular church that they attend to, so they come to this community outreach and be a part of the Easter service here and feel welcome at Roberts Stadium," John Lee Smith with Crossroads Christian Church said.

This is an annual tradition for Crossroads Christian Church.
