MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week for Christians in Memphis and around the world, and members of Kingdom Life Church commemorated Palm Sunday with a visual presentation.

A portion of the congregation paraded down Highland Street with a boy on a donkey portraying Jesus headed to Jerusalem. Others held signs and waved palm branches in the traditional manner as they circled the plaza.

"To know that Jesus Christ came to the world to die but to rise again. A lot of time when we think about Easter we think about bunnies, suits, and dresses, but it's about Jesus," said Pastor Michael Arnold, Kingdom Life.

Escorted by a Memphis police motorcade, it is the fifth year the church has done the Palm Sunday reenactment. The church says they chose the Poplar and Highland area because of the high traffic, and the fact that it's near their church in the community where they want to spread their message.

"We wanted to come and let the world to know and let Memphis know that Jesus is King and he is Lord," said Arnold. "We've got together with groups and different people in the community so that they know about what we're doing."

The church currently worships nearby in the Imax Theater at Pink Palace Museum on Central Avenue, and Arnold says the city can look forward to seeing more from their congregation.
