Beginning March 13 and ending April 8, attendees at Augustana Lutheran Church, 600 Court St., will find themselves in a courtroom with a judge, a bailiff, a prosecuting attorney and a defense attorney. Each week a different biblical character — John, Mary Magdalene, James, Herod and Mary — will be a witness to testify about Jesus and defend the argument for a "not guilty" verdict. Be a part of the drama either as one of the characters or the "jury." Worship begins at 7 p.m. and includes Holy Communion. For more information, call 712-255-7694.
