‘Journey to the Cross’ Lets Visitors Experience Events Leading Up to Jesus’ Death

Bent Tree Hosts Production Tuesday through Friday of Holy Week

CARROLLTON, Texas, April 10, 2017 – “Journey to the Cross,” an interactive, self-guided walk through the events leading up to Jesus’ death, will be held Tuesday through Friday during Holy Week at Bent Tree, a nondenominational Bible church.

“This is not your typical church service,” said Paul Miller, a member of the pastoral staff at Bent Tree. “You will walk through eight multi-sensory stations designed to help you see, feel and taste a little of what Jesus experienced during His final hours of life.”

Admission is free. Advance tickets are recommended and available at benttree.org/journey-to-the-cross/. The walk usually takes about 30 minutes.

“Journey to the Cross“ starts in the Upper Room, where the public will be able to sit down at a table, much like Jesus and his disciples did. Following this, individuals can walk through the other stations, including:

·       The Garden;

·       The Betrayal of Judas

·       The Abandonment of Jesus by His disciples;

·       The Scorn of the Roman Soldiers;

·       The Way to the Cross (Via Dolorosa);

·       The Cross; and

·       The Tomb.

The last time Bent Tree hosted “Journey to the Cross,” in 2014, it attracted approximately 4,400 people in three days. This year’s event will last four days and be open to the public 4-9 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Friday.

Following the “Journey to the Cross,” Bent Tree will hold Easter services at 8, 9:45 and 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Bent Tree exists to be used by God to transform people into disciples of Jesus Christ, within the local community and around the world. The focus of the teaching at Bent Tree is based on Galatians 2:20, a Bible verse that centers around dependence on Jesus and on the Holy Spirit living within a person. Bent Tree began as a church of 15 families in 1975, and now has expanded to more than 4,000 attendees. Bent Tree is a mission-minded church with a desire to be used by God to bring the message of the gospel to the ends of the earth.
