Methodist Pastor Bruce Phillips spends his time between three churches - Neligh, Oakdale and Clearwater. He brought those three, along with two others together this week to perform the "Living Last Supper," a version he wrote.
While several churches across Northeast Nebraska perform a similar story, the one performed Thursday at the Neligh American Legion was a story Phillips said he felt called to write.
"Several years ago, God put it on my heart that I needed to write something like this," he said. "So I did a tremendous amount of research both from the Bible and the commentaries and figured out just what to write and what God laid out on my heart. It turned out to be real moving."
Members from Neligh, Oakdale, Clearwater and Elgin Methodist Churches, along with member of the Congregational Church, performed in front of nearly 150 people.
Toward the end of the 30-minute performance, the disciples paused for about 60 seconds in the exact position so many people think of - the pose captured in Leonardo Da Vinci's painting.
Phillips complimented the disciples for their effort and to the community members for supporting the performance.
"I'm pleased the community came out to support it," he said. "For the first year, I think it turned out really good. This really was a community event, and I hope this becomes an annual performance."
