Tradition continues for Wesley Last Supper
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Eighteen years ago, after being inspired by seeing “The Last Supper” performed by an area church in Wausau, Lynn Tomlinson presented the idea to Wesley United Methodist Church and began organizing its recreation at Wesley United Methodist Church, Marshfield.
Wesley will continue that tradition despite the devastating loss of the church building by fire on Sept. 2. Zion United Methodist Church, 2106 N. Peach Ave., Marshfield, has offered to host this year’s “Last Supper” presentation.
Over the years, many different gentlemen from multiple churches in Marshfield and the surrounding area have participated in this reenactment. Several of the original cast members are still active participants in this year’s presentation.
The church sanctuary will be transformed into “The Upper Room,” where several area churches will combine to bring to the community “The Last Supper.” Thirteen men will portray Jesus Christ and his disciples.
The presentation will take place April 15 at 7 p.m. and April 17 at 7 p.m.
