LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – A Lowndes County church is holding a special service, Sunday.

“Let It Go” was the theme for the sermon at Yorkville Heights Church.

Members released balloons into the sky as a way to let go of any problems and situations in their lives.

They say the balloons are symbolic of what’s holding them back.

“Releasing a balloon makes them feel good of what’s held them back from anger, disappointment, bad decisions, maybe a bad relationship, but God has released them and He’s already forgiven them,” said Pastor Bobby Richardson. “But sometimes we have to do something in the physical, and that’s what we’ve done today as a community.”

Richardson says this was the first time they’ve released balloons, and members already hope to do it again.
