Fieldale, VA -- A 110 foot by 70 foot cross is now visible from Highway 220 in Fieldale. Victory Baptist Church was building this huge metal cross to be placed just outside their front door. Now after weeks of construction, the 30 ton cross is finally finished.

They say that it took several people to build and two cranes to lift it. Members of the Church say they hope when people see the cross they will think of Jesus and all that he gave.

"When people drive by, when people see it from 220 they will think about that. And it will be a testimony. And so we are very thankful that we can do that," says David Naff, chairman of Victory Baptist Church. 

They made sure to get it done by this weekend so it will be ready for Easter Sunday's Sunrise Service.
