GRAPEVINE, TX (CNN) - In celebration of Easter, a church in Texas sets a world record with this giant drawing of Jesus.

It’s a chalk drawing measuring 17,000 square-feet.

Members of the fellowship church in Grapevine, TX and volunteers gathered early Thursday to begin the project. It tooks hundreds of vounteers and over 6,000 individual pieces of chalk.

It turns out it's easier to make than you might think.

That’s because it's basically paint-by-numbers chalk art.

Rain is in the forecast for North Texas on Sunday. Church members say they understand if it takes on a more abstract appearance if it does rain.
