The Chosenbeginning Wednesday, October 14th @ 6:30pm
Join us as we watch the powerful and life changing show, The Chosen. The Chosen is a crowd-funded, multi-season television show about Jesus and his followers. It creatively interweaves the gospel and scriptural truth and events with the lives of those Jesus intercepts. It sparks renewed or first time interest in it's viewers to dive back into reading the gospels, reignites passion for Jesus, and connects our heart and life experiences with those Jesus chose to follow Him in a fresh and personal way. The Chosen is indeed an experience that you and your friends do not want to miss! All are welcome to join us!

We will gather to watch one episode each week beginning Wednesday, October 14th at 6:30 pm. After the conclusion of each episode, everyone will be invited to stay to discuss within small groups their responses and reactions to each episode. Each person will also receive the scriptural context from each episode to take home for review and personal reflection on the Gospels. Our Youth Group, KnoSho will be joining us for this experience. Families with younger children are welcome, although childcare is not provided. Parents may want to pre-screen episodes prior to their children watching as a couple contain intense thematic moments.
The Chosen will be shown in both the Sanctuary and the Meet & Greet for spacing and small group discussion purposes. This television show is crowd-funded, which means that financial contributions enable people from all over the world to watch the show for free, and provides funding for the production of future seasons. As such, we want to be a part of "paying it forward" as a church. Each week, we will take up an optional collection to donate towards this project.
