Plans are being made for the 3rd annual Cross Across the County.
The event will begin at 6 a.m. March 29th starting at Pekin United Methodist Church.
The cross will be carried from there to the Canton Christian Church and will arrive in time for the Good Friday Service.
Darwin Gilliatt organized the first such event locally and said he was inspired by Mark 10:21 – Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven; and come, take up the cross and follow me.”
For more information, or to get your name on the list of cross carriers, call Gilliatt at 883-2088; Steve Gorman 844-1471; Tammy Worley 883-4506 or the First Baptist Church of Salem at 883-5460.
