My church, Yellow Creek Baptist, is in the thick of preparations for our annual Easter musical, which we call “The Living Cross.”

Lots and lots of work goes into making this production a reality.  Many volunteers are needed both before, during, and after the production – all doing things like constructing the stage and set, gathering costumes, singing in the choir, serving as ushers, helping in the parking lot … and the list could go on!  A majority of our church must work together in order to prepare to share the gospel with the friends, family, neighbors, and strangers who will walk through the doors of our church April 9-12.

And while it is a lot of work, being a part of “The Living Cross” is also a lot of fun.  All of the altos are crammed into this one little section of the giant cross, and we get to know one another really well!  We’re spending a lot of extra time together right now, and have the opportunity to get to know one another better.  We sit on the floor during our breaks, and we talk and laugh.

“The Living Cross” is just one more opportunity to build community with others in our church – some of whom we would not meet outside of this experience.  We are reminded how much God has given us through our church family.  May those who come to see the performances be blessed as much as we are through the preparation of it.

And, by the way, if you live in our near Owensboro, Kentucky we would love to have you as our guests.  Performances are April 9, 10, and 11 at 7:00 pm and April 12 at 10:00 am.  Tickets are free and can be reserved through the church office.
