John Hicks holds unpainted and painted crosses he makes in his Yatesville shop. He delivered about 800 of the unfinished crosses to First Baptist Church in Lovejoy just before Easter.

For members of Lovejoy First Baptist Church, the cross is a daily reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made for the world. Since 2010, volunteers have built thousands of small wooden crosses and gave them away free so Christians everywhere can display the “quiet yet powerful” message that they believe in God.
