Columbus County churchgoers write New Testament along sidewalks

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

WHITEVILLE,NC (WWAY)– Around 30 churches joined their congregations in downtown Whiteville Sunday for a unique Easter sunrise service. Following the service believers hit the streets, writing the New Testament (in chalk) on the sidewalks throughout the city.

“It was a wonderful gathering of God’s people,” said Pleasant Plains Baptist Church Pastor, Dr. David Heller. “We celebrated Easter and the resurrection and now they’ve begun to go out and write the entire New Testament on the sidewalks of downtown Whiteville. A project that’s never been done anywhere that we’re aware of.”

Inspired by the service, around a thousand Columbus County residents attempted to write the New Testament and it’s nearly 800,000 words, lining 18 blocks in the city of Whiteville.

Believers say it was a great way to praise the one who gave up everything.

“When you think of Whiteville and the small town, it’s really quite a feat that we’re undertaking but it’s neat to be a part of the community and that experience,” said Beverly Justice from Whiteville United Methodist Church.

Many Columbus County churchgoers say it’s an Easter Sunday they will not soon forget.

“We think this is going to be an Easter sunrise service that everyone will remember for a long, long time, hopefully all their lives,” said event organizer Janice Young. “I don’t know if we’ll do it again this way next year or exactly what we’ll do but I do know that this is an Easter nobody will forget for quite a while.”

The idea to write the New Testament on the sidewalks came from Mark Gilchrest of the Whiteville News Reporter.
