WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

One church in Wilmington went to great lengths to remind people what Easter is all about.

Those driving along Wrightsville Avenue Friday may have noticed three men, outfitted to look like Jesus and the two thieves, standing on crucifixes outside Gateway Church.

The crucifixion reenactment attracted a lot of attention, with some stopping to take pictures.

Eight church members volunteered for the crucifixion display. They switched out every 15 minutes, with warm drinks and blankets waiting inside the church for the volunteers.
