Sunday School Bound: Dressing in Easter finery is a gay lark for sisters Leslee Zerr, 3 1/2, and Lynn Zerr, 5 (top picture), of 2362 Parkwood Ave., Pittsfield Village. They will be stepping out for the Zion Lutheran Church tomorrow. But it is a serious business for seven-year-old twins Larry Steven and Lawrence Starling, and Leo Stanley, 6 (above), the sons of the Rev. L. S. Parks of the Bethel AME Church, as they take time to pose for a family portrait. They live at 314 W. Summit St.
