CINCINNATI, Oh. (WYMT) - A big crowd flocked to a Southern Ohio church for the dedication of a towering roadside Jesus statue.
The Solid Rock Church, north of Cincinnati, dedicated the 51 foot statue at a service Sunday night.
Nicknamed "Hug Me Jesus," the lighted statue depicts a full-bodied Jesus who's standing with open arms near Interstate 75.
It replaces the previous statue, that was known as "Touchdown Jesus" or "Big Butter Jesus".
It was destroyed by lightning in 2010.
