On Friday, April 14th, and Saturday, April 15th, Calvary Baptist church held an Easter drama performance that was attended by some 350 people from the community of Macon County. The congregation members gave an outstanding performance of the Easter story that was narrated by David Cooke. The members of Calvary Baptist came together in spite of the many adversities that they faced throughout this entire production as they believe with all their hearts that God had appointed for this drama to be seen by all in the community. Easter is a biblical event that is all about what Jesus Christ came to this earth to do. He freely gave up His life so that who so ever would believe in Him, would have eternal salvation by putting their faith and trust in what he did for all of humanity on the cross. Jesus rose again after being in the tomb for three days and was seated at the right hand of the father in heaven, where he went to prepare a place for all. Pastor Johnny Beaver gave a very real performance of an angry Sanhedrin priest who challenged Jesus to come down off the cross if he were the son of God. Tabitha Newberry, D.J. Culbert, Josiah Floyd, and all of the Calvary Baptist youth put on a stunning and very powerful performing skit to the song “Set me Free” by the musical group Casting Crowns. This performance was videoed and placed on Facebook and has received over 1500 views. This drama had many talented performers such as Ken Tirjan, who played the role of Jesus in the market scene, and after His resurrection. Diana Bean played the role of Mary, Jesus’s mother. Silvia Huffines sang the most beautiful rendition of El Shaddai. Ann Tuck sang He Touched Me. David Floyd sang This Ones With Me. Calvary Baptist rose above all expectations with this powerful performance of the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in this Easter drama.
