Solid Rock Day Camp hosted a live "Passion Play" in celebration of Easter, one of the most holy days in the Christian faith. Actors in costume reenacted the story of the final days of Jesus Christ, which is referred to as the Passion. The performance included scenes from the last days of Jesus' ministry on Earth, his death, and resurrection- through drama, narration, and song.

This presentation of the story of the Passion was arranged by Wilma and Mark Cordes to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. The live performance began with the journey of Jesus and his disciples as he ministered to the public. It continued to The Last Supper, where Jesus washed the feet of his disciples to teach them that they should take care of each other. He then broke bread with them and served wine.

Jesus was led to his death by the guards. The sky became dark at midday, lasting for three hours, until Jesus died on the cross. His body was anointed and buried in a tomb; and the tomb was secured with a large stone and guarded by Roman soldiers.

The Glory of Easter
On the third day after his death on the cross, Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene. When the stone was removed from the tomb, Jesus’ body was not there. He also appeared to many others, including 11 of his disciples, over a span of 40 days.

A simple beginning
This was the third year the Passion play was arranged by the Cordeses, and the second year that Scott and Bonnie McQuade agreed to host the play at Solid Rock Day Camp on Stephens Road. The Cordeses and McQuades have made similar arrangements at Christmas for presentations of a “Living Nativity” at the camp. According to Wilma Cordes, the Passion presentation included many of the same actors that also performed in the Living Nativity.
