Trip to Oberammergau planned

The community is invited to join National Heights Baptist Church on a trip to Austria and the Oberammergau Passion Play. The group will leave Atlanta on August 26.

There will be an informational meeting in the National Heights Baptist Church Fellowship Hall on Monday, March 15, at 10:30 a.m. presented by Collette Vacations. Details of the trip to see this once in a decade performance will be given.

The original Passion Play began in 1634 when villagers of Oberammergau bowed to perform a play depicting the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, if God would spare its residents from the bubonic plague.

Call Helen Odom at 404-964-3485 to make reservations.
