Southview’s Easter pageant brings people to Christ

The annual Easter pageant at Southview Baptist Church, Lincoln, Neb., touches people from a variety of religious backgrounds. Every year people accept Jesus as their Savior as a result of viewing the pageant.

Southview is the oldest Southern Baptist church in the state of Nebraska. The church celebrated its 60th anniversary in September 2015.

This year marks the 26th year for the pageant called “This Day of Resurrection.” Church member Sylvana Airan wrote the script and directs the pageant.
Dates and times for pageant performances are:

  • Wednesday, April 5, at 7 p.m.
  • Friday, April 7, at 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 8, at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, April 9 (Palm Sunday), at 7 p.m.

Admission is free and free childcare will be offered for children ages 6 and under.

“I do believe God has anointed the pageant,” Airan said. “There is absolutely no way that we could pull off such a big production with a limited budget and minimum number of people and each year reach so many unsaved people with various religious backgrounds if God did not have a hand in it.

“I am so grateful to my church family for the opportunity for us to share the gospel with Muslims, Hindus, Zoroastrians and other non-believers. Truly the mission field is at our doorstep.”
