The churches of downtown Hagerstown hold the history as well as the faith of the communities who built and worshiped in them. They also hold artistic treasures - Tiffany windows, mosaics, decorative tile, handcarved woodwork. "Over the years, the community wanted to give their best to God - with treasures of art," says the Rev. Arthur Leib Grove, pastor emeritus of Zion Evangelical and Reformed Church of the United Church of Christ. For Easter we are sharing some of those art treasures from local churches.

email@example.com Blacksmith Eric Johnson heated pieces of iron to a reddish glow Saturday and then shaped them into spikes similar to those used by the Romans to hammer through the hands and feet of Jesus. Others took turns chipping bark off cut locust trees and flattening and squaring out the sides. Several hours later, their work would produce a large wooden cross. Johnson, of Kearneysville, W.Va., said he hoped the activity, which took place outside of Church of Christ at Hagerstown, would give church members an idea of the pain Jesus endured during his crucifixion.
