Bald Knob Organizers asking for "One for the Cross"

ALTO PASS, IL (KFVS) -

There may be an extra collection plate passed at your Palm Sunday church service.

The Bald Knob Cross of Peace board of directors asks church members to donate one dollar to help complete on-going restoration work at the cross. The fundraising campaign is called "One for the Cross".

Organizers say funds raised on previous Palm Sundays have helped pay off the already completed restoration work; but organizers say more needs to be done. Plans include building a new paver garden to surround the base of the cross, and making improvements to the welcome center and amphitheater.

The amphitheater is the location of Easter Sunrise Services. Sunday March 31, 2013 will mark the seventy-seventh consecutive Easter the faithful have gathered for a sunrise service atop Bald Knob Mountain.
