Salisbury Church Takes Hundreds on an Easter Journey

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md. - One local church brings to life what they say is the reason for the Easter season.

For the last five years, the Cross Pointe Church of the Nazarene in Salisbury has presented an interactive journey through first century Jerusalem.

Visitors start in the marketplace where real sheep and goats greet them. They then travel through several biblical scenes and listen to actors portray characters such as Mary and Martha, Pilate and his wife, the thief Barabas and of course see the empty tomb.

Pastor Janelle Beiler helped organize the event. She said the tour has helped many people understand what the Bible says Jesus Christ did for Christians.

"The whole idea is for people to walk the road that Jesus walked, and to experience his last days," Beiler said. "And to make it come alive and real so that it's not just another holiday that we celebrate, but it's a part of who we are."

At the end of the tour, visitors can write notes and prayer requests and then nail them to a cross.

Friday is the last day for tours. Beiler said more than 600 people experienced their "Easter Journey" this year.

The church is also hosting a special Easter service on Sunday, April 12, 2009.

For more information, call the church at (410) 742-3840.
