Carry the Cross is an organized call to action by the churches of SEMO to mobilize the message of the gospel during Passion Week (Good Friday). It is a united endeavor of the people in the community in Poplar Bluff to literally Carry the Cross along our streets and highways to demonstrate and show the genuine image of the Cross of Christ.
Poplar Bluff First Church of God has accepted the challenge by Pastor David Craig of 90.3FM to lead the endeavor here in the Poplar Bluff community.
"On Good Friday, March 30th from 7-11AM, we will be lining the streets of Hwy 67 (from the corner of Hwy 53 to Hwy 60 junction), displaying our crosses for all to see. We are looking for anyone willing to step out on faith and sign up to stand (or sit) in a location with a cross for those 4 hours. (The crosses will be built/ assembled as we get closer to Passion Week.)"
If you are interested in donating your time (even if not the full 4 hours), please contact Poplar Bluff First Church of God (573) 785-5378
