    Vice President Mike Pence is culminating his trip to Florida with a Sunday church service in Coral Springs.

    The vice president attended a Sunday worship at Church By The Glades where he spoke to a large crowd about his faith, his journey during the campaign trail and also about Donald Trump.

    Outside the church, along Atlantic Boulevard, a group of demonstrators held up signs with rhetoric against the sitting vice president.

    "It was about Sunday and coming out to church to celebrate God," said Brandon, a churchgoer. "So I'm glad it didn't turn out to to be what we've seen throughout the election."

    Many church goers after the service told us they were excited to hear the vice president speak on behalf of their religion.

    "We have more hope than we ever had before and he's a good man who will help lead this country in a good direction," Jack Fields said.

    On Saturday, Pence spoke to small business owners in Jacksonville alongside Florida Gov. Rick Scott.

    "The Obamacare nightmare is about to end," Pence said.

    He called for block grants, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and making medicaid unique for each community.

    Meanwhile, President Trump spent the weekend at Mar-a-Lago where he met with business leaders to discuss plans to reform veterans affairs.

    Vice President Pence boarded Air Force Two Sunday afternoon at Fort-Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
