Walking the road of faith.

Walking the road of faith.
Salem Baptist Church offered people a chance to “walk the road” and see the Biblical story of Lazarus with “Journey of Faith” held Saturday night. The “travelers” were greeted by narrator Jimmy Williams, who guided them to different rooms set up to be scenes from the story. Each part of the story was acted out by church members. At the end, Salem pastor Tony Harmon offered an opportunity for anyone wishing to begin their own “journey of faith” by accepting Jesus or renewing their journey (rededicating their life.) There was also a fall festival part to the evening for kids that included face painting, a cotton ride, and bounce house.
