Phenix City students participate in 8th annual Crosswalk

Posted: Updated:
PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -

More than 30 students got the chance to walk in the footsteps of Jesus Wednesday night, April 16.

It was all part of the Crosswalk event at First Baptist Church in Phenix City. Participants walked more than five miles up 4th Ave. to Idle Hour Park. There they heard a sermon, and then walked back to the church.

This event is described as an intimate personal journey as part of the Easter celebration.

Fred Copeland, Minister of Students at First Baptist Church, said, "Some people honked at us, some people smile, some people wave, some people beep, but the youth of today are not used to that. So that's kind of a personal thing where they're able to feel kinda what some of the humiliation Jesus may have felt."

This is the eighth year the church has held this crosswalk event.
