United Community Church to host Easter pageant
The congregation of United Community Church, at 1110 Kinoole St. in Hilo, invites the public to “Doubting and Believing,” a dramatic and colorful Easter pageant at 10 a.m. on Easter Sunday. The play is an adaptation of “A Word on the Resurrection” by Sharon Kay Chatwell.
“Starting with a chilling description of what life must have been like for Jesus’ followers immediately after his death on the Cross, the audience will journey through the re-telling of the events of Easter Sunday and the following week, which proved to the doubting disciple, Thomas, that ‘Jesus is alive!’” said Pastor Merle K. Lai.
“All of our hopes, as Christians, hang on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ,” said Lai. “The Apostle Paul of the Bible tells the story of the Resurrection from the eyes of someone who was actually at the empty tomb, and as someone who actually saw the Risen Christ.
“Paul’s words still echo down to us through the passing centuries. We hear him saying to us, along with Mary Magdalene, ‘I have seen the Lord!’
“And now there is no doubt that mankind today has a hope and a future of eternal life because of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ,” said Lai, “for it is God’s absolute assurance.”
Following the play, there will be a potluck luncheon, egg hunt, egg-rolling contest, Easter hat contest, karaoke and other fun games. People are invited to bring their favorite dishes and join in the fun after the Sunday pageant.
