The votes are in! By God’s grace we will be showing the movie St. Peter tomorrow night, Friday April 15th. The movie will be displayed upstairs inside the church starting at 8:30 p.m. Join us for the final Friday in this blessed lenten fast as we share in prayer and fellowship.

A further description of the movie and reminders are listed below. Attached you will find the notes from last week’s meeting on The Necessity of the Cross as well as the schedule for Holy Week in both Arabic and English.

Movie Description:

As a dedicated follower of Christ, Peter spreads the message of the Christians across the land, often staying only one step ahead of those determined to persecute him. But on the road to Damascus, Peter comes face-to-face with a stranger who shows him the only way – he must put himself on the cross in order to bring peace to Rome.
