TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) This weekend marks two very important religious feasts Easter and Passover. However, as the number of faithful falls from year to year.

The Wabash Valley’s religious community is looking for new ways to tend to the flock.

According to a recent study, close to 8% of the people in the United States did not have a religious affiliation in 1990.

But by 2010 that number had risen to 18% or 25 million Americans. Groups like Passion in the Park said their production helps to bring people closer to the story.

“You can read your bible and that’s a relationship that you personally can have with the Lord,” Lori Aplin of Passion in the Park said. “Then you can see movies like the ‘Passion of the Christ’ or ‘God is not Dead’ and that just kind of enhances that relationship.”
