Mount Auburn Easter celebration

A local church is giving families an event where they can celebrate Easter early.

Mount Auburn is presenting “A Walk with Jesus,” an Easter celebration for family from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. March 10 at the church, 3100 W. Stones Crossing Road, Greenwood.

The event will include three re-enactments of Holy Week designed for children to experience what it was like to celebrate Jesus’ coming to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and Jesus weeping in the Garden of Gethsemane prior to being taken away by the Roman soldiers and nailed to the cross nand finding the empty tomb and experiencing Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday.

There will be child-friendly crafts and games to help the children experience the empty tomb and Jesus’ resurrection.

Snacks and beverages will also be provided.
