JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Central Baptist Church hosted a crowd of over 7,000 at their church services on Easter Sunday. 

The services were held on the church's four campuses across Jonesboro. 

The church hired Jonesboro police officers to help with directing traffic during services. 

Bob Snell, the church's Media and Communications Director, said he hopes their many visitors attend again next Sunday. 

"If we can get half of the people that were here today that have not been to church before, that would be a success," said Snell. 

Snell said the church is also planning a new series for next Sunday.  "We'll begin a new series here, it's called 'why church'", said Snell.  "A lot of people want to know why do we come to church, why do we sing, why do we give."

Snell said the series will answer those questions and more and it will have a great message for newcomers.
