Two free performances of “The Cross and The Switchblade,” a play presented by Sojourn Faith, will be held 7 p.m., June 6 and 7, in the Walter Edge Theater on Atlantic Cape’s Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.
The play is a true story about a small town Pennsylvania pastor, David Wilkerson, who reaches out to the toughest street gangs in New York with a message of hope and redemption. David gets a quick street education when he sees firsthand the reality of street violence, heroin addicts, teen prostitutes and crime. Armed with a simple gospel message and love, Wilkerson begins to bring hope and light to the darkest alleyways of New York City.
Sponsoring churches of the performances are Sojourn Community Church of Egg Harbor Township, Lakewood Chapel of Mays Landing, Trinity Alliance Church of Pomona, Faith Alliance Church of Vineland, King of Kings Church of Manahawkin, Crossroads Fellowship of Pleasantville, and Hope for Atlantic City.
