Phenix City students participate in 8th annual Crosswalk

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 ofStudents at First Baptist Church, said, "Some people honked at us, somepeople smile, some people wave, some people beep, but the youth of today arenot used to that. So that's kind of a personal thing where they're able to feelkinda what some of the humiliation Jesus may have felt."

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