The Passion of the Christ Drama

Friday, April 7th at 7:00 PM

First Christian Church presents a live drama depicting the suffering of Jesus with a dramatic recounting of his trial, beatings, and crucifixion. Come experience it for yourself with audience participation. Parental discretion is advised. Some portrayal of Jesus’ sufferings may be too graphic for young children. The evening will include a time of singing at the beginning and will end with communion. Reflect on the suffering that Jesus went through to pay for our sins on the cross.
