RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – St. Paul's Baptist Church held a different kind of worship service this Sunday.

Hundreds of worshippers showed up to the "Rock the Diamond" event at the Flying Squirrels' baseball field.

Free health screenings and fitness activities were available and a band performed for worshippers.

Organizers said the event is a good way for the church to connect with the community.

"We sought to take the energy and enthusiasm and passion that we experience in worship, out to a neutral community venue, where we stand a level ground with the rest of the community," said Pastor Dr. Lance Watson.
