AFFTON, Mo. (KSDK) - An Affton church participated in a mock crucifixion scene Friday.

Three large crosses were set up in front of First Baptist Church of Affton at the corner of Gravois and McKenzie roads.

From 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. church members dressed up in biblical costumes and gathered at the foot of the crosses to watch as three young men portraying Jesus and the two criminals hanged themselves from the crosses.

The event is held each year on Good Friday and caught the attention of south county drivers.
