The 10th-Annual Cross Walk held by Victory Assembly of God, held on Thursday and Friday, brought out the youth ministry of the church, to raise funds for Spread the Light.
Spread the Light foundation that raises money for missionaries to other countries around the world.
The Cross Walk has raised over $40,000 in the last nine years.
The group walked for two days carrying two wooden crosses throughout Lewis County. On Good Friday, their journey began at the church, which then lead them throughout Lewis County.
They stopped at schools that were along the way and prayed for the schools, students and staff, which was a new feature of the walk this year.
On Friday the group finished their trek at Lewis County High School. On Saturday the group started with the High School and made their way throughout Jane Lew and then finished their journey at the Masonic Cemetery in Weston, by walking several laps.
This event is symbolic of the Via Dolorosa, which is the path in Jerusalem that Jesus carried his cross on the way to his crucifixion.
“It just represents the path that Jesus walked to where he was beat at Calvary,” said youth member Seth Carpenter.
“It shows us how much Jesus went through and lets us show our faith,” said youth member Rhiannon Rogers.
“I think that it’s a way to show the community what we as Christians believe on Easter,” said youth member Cameron Ross.
