KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Some churches in Kansas held in-person Easter services on Sunday, despite the Kansas Supreme Court ruling in favor of Gov. Laura Kelly's order to prohibit mass gatherings of more than 10 people.

Calvary Baptist Church in Junction City was one of those institutions, with its pastor Aaron Harris tweeting on Saturday that services would go on, despite the decision by the Kansas Supreme Court.

Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Basehor also held services, according to KSNT.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported that Heritage Baptist Church in Lawrence moved ahead with its Easter Sunday service as well.

The Kansas Supreme Court heard arguments on Saturday via Zoom video conferencing before announcing its decision Saturday night.
