FORT MYERS, Fla.—On the day before Easter, Daniels Road Baptist Church hosted a free event called Walk with Jesus: An Easter Event for Families.
Families from the church and community traveled through time to follow the footsteps of Jesus during the week leading to His death, burial, and resurrection. At the event, the families witnessed Jesus’ triumphal entry, sat down to attend the Last Supper, prayed with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, stood at the foot of the cross as He died, and walked into the empty tomb after He had risen.
“Best of all,” says Pastor Michael Banks, “they learned that Jesus’ sacrifice was for them, so that their sins could be washed away and they could be forgiven!”
An Easter egg hunt for kids followed the re-creation of the Biblical accounts.
