Sabbath afternoon, Campion students joined together to share God through reenacting nine scenes from the life of Jesus in celebration of Easter. Around 100 vehicles from the community and church members drove around the campus and watched glimpses of scenes from Jesus’ birth to His resurrection.
Produced by Erin Johnson and Nancy Meszaros, the entire student body was involved in representing different aspects of the life of Christ including: Jesus’ birth, baptism, miracles, Last Supper, Gethsamane, trial before Pilate, His crucifixion, and the Resurrection. Students in Johnson’s drama class composed and directed each scene.
“What I enjoyed the most was seeing how hard the students worked to put on this performance,” commented Brianna Bell, one of the student directors. “You could tell that they were definitely doing this for God.”
Andy Obregon, who played Jesus in the Crucifixion scene, reflected, “Every time I had to be lifted up on the cross, I thought about the actual pain Jesus went through because of how much He loves us. I have so much more appreciation for Him now more than ever.”
Erin Johnson, director of the Resurrection scene remarked, “I saw a lot of smiling faces as they drove away from the campus. We hope that the experience was a reminder that Jesus has risen and that he is coming back. Who wouldn’t be happy knowing that?”
