On Sunday, Rod Squad hosted a special ‘Resurrection Day’ Church service in the big open Equestrian pavilion where people met to remember and celebrate the events of that first Easter, when Jesus Christ took the punishment we all deserve by giving His life for us on the cross, but rising again from the dead so that we may live eternally.  We were welcomed and joined by Chris Foley – past local MP, now paster of Grace Community Church in Maryborough – who also played bass guitar for us.
