Movie - The Insanity of God 

Come see the documentary, The Insanity of God, on Sunday, October 20th at 2:30pm in the Sanctuary. This is the true story of missionaries Nik and Ruth Ripken who journey into the depths of the persecuted church asking the question - Is Jesus Worth It? Join the Ripkens as they tell the story of being taught by believers in persecution - "how to love Jesus, and to walk with Him day-by-day even when it doesn't make sense." Emad Samir will lead a discussion following the movie.
