NARROWS, Va. — Halloween is a fun holiday, where kids dress up in a costume and go trick-or-treating. It's known for haunted houses, ghosts and goblins. But a Giles County church is offering an alternative.

The Cornerstone Pentecostal Holiness Church in Narrows has a production called "Heaven or Hell". 80 volunteers are helping with the drama which has eight scenes.

The tour starts with the deaths of teenagers after a party and a married couple killed in a murder/ suicide. The story follows them to judgement day where their life choices determine whether they go to heaven or hell.

The pastor calls it a reality check. 

"The truth that what we see in life every day with our natural eyes is not what it's all about," says Pastor John Jenkins, "There is a spiritual side to life that does last for eternity."

Many parents bring their children to see the production.

"I think it's good for my kids," says Brian Ferguson, "I mean it's fun. It's got a lot to do with the community. A lot of the local kids are in this. It's church driven. I think it's got a positive message all the way around."


You can see the production this Saturday night.
