Sumiton Church of God will once again present its outdoor Easter drama, Redemption on April 6 and 7. This is the second year that the church has presented the outdoor version of the Easter story, including the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection.

The format of the event has changed since last year, from 7 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. a tram will depart every 10 minutes from the Bevill State Sumiton parking lot. Individual cars will not be driving through, to eliminate problems with sound, visibility and wait times.

The event is free and open to individuals and groups and all ages are welcome.
