The JBM-HH Gospel Service hosted an Easter Cantata in celebration of Resurrection Sunday, March 31, during their regular worship service.

Members of the congregation portrayed the various characters that were biblically involved with the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ; the disciples, the Roman soldiers, Mary and the wailing women. Here some of the cast members assemble before entering the Sanctuary of the Memorial Chapel.

Over 150 members, guests and out of town visitors attended the presentation that was followed by a fellowship dinner. Bernetta Townsend coordinated the cantata. Chaplain Devon Foster is the pastor.
