  Not your average Easter drama
Special to The monitor
MALAKOFF–“Loved With A Cross” was always his first choice.
“There are so many powerful Easter dramas, but the moment I listened to the challenging music score of “Loved With A Cross,” I knew our choir would appreciate and meet its demands. They have not disappointed me,” minister of music and education at the First Baptist Church of Malakoff Eric Beechem said.
According to Beechem, there are multiple unique qualities to the drama.
The music is written like a Hollywood film score, which makes it enjoyable to the audience. The “story” is told from the viewpoint of Thomas, the doubting disciple.
The audience will be challenged throughout the drama. As in life, they will need to be searching for Jesus.
“Jesus is everywhere in the drama, yet never seen. It’s interesting to me that Jesus is truly the ‘star’ of this production, yet not a character,” Beechem said.
“This drama is truly unlike any other, and we are blessed to be able to offer it to our community,” he added.
The sanctuary at FBC Malakoff has been totally transformed for the musical.
The entire choir loft has been replaced with a complete set for the play, including a dramatic cross placed high above the baptistery.
The cast includes close to 50 choir members, actors, and a full audio and tech team.
“Our church is definitely blessed with a multitude of talent. I am thankful to be with a group of people who use their gifts for His glory,” Beechem said.
“Loved With A Cross” will be presented at 7 p.m. April 2-3 and Easter Sunday at 11 a.m.
Admission is free, and childcare is provided.
FBC Malakoff is located at 220 W. Mitcham.

Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
