Prattville church remembers Easter through drama, symbolscomment (0)
April 6, 2006
Once Easter and all its attendant activities end, how well will you remember the sacrifice Christ made on the cross?
For those who see “The Sacrifice” at Glynwood Baptist Church, Prattville, in Autauga Baptist Association in April, a simple nail will be their reminder.
As the audience enters the church, each person is given a nail. At the end of the drama, people can hammer their nail into a cross to signify that they have chosen to follow God or that they are rededicating their life to Him.
Some choose to keep their nail as a reminder of the sacrifice Christ made.
“Next to our … Vacation Bible School, ‘The Sacrifice’ is our greatest outreach tool,” said Pastor Chip Smith.
Approximately 120 members of the church’s music and drama teams, as well as countless others who build sets and decorate the church, are involved in the production that shares the story of Jesus’ ministry through the memories of “Old John,” one of the 12 disciples. Mike Denning, associate pastor and minister of music for Glynwood Baptist, said although this is an annual event, the music and dramas are new each year.
Perfomances of “The Sacrifice” will be April 7–9 at 7 p.m. A nursery will be provided for children under 5 years old, as some scenes are not suitable for small children.
