The story of a girl with two names; one hidden.
The story of two kings; one hidden.
A story of two decrees: one to destroy a people, the other to save a people.
That which is hidden comes to light in this new musical adaptation of the Biblical story of a Jewish orphan who becomes Queen to the Persian Emperor, King Ahasuerus (Xerxes) at a time when his reign has become plagued with political intrigue, plots of sabotage and genocide that threaten the unity of the Empire.
A company of 80 actors, singers, and dancers with a live orchestra will transport audiences to the magnificent winter palace of King Ahasuerus in the 5th century BC Persian capital city of Susa.

Envisioning God’s Plan – 2020 Vision Board Workshop
In the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, it can be challenging to take a step back and reflect on our goals and convictions. The perfect time to do that is in the new year! Did you make any new-year’s resolutions? Are you looking to be more intentional in your faith walk? More bold or courageous? Loving? Self-controlled?
Please join us! Together we will visualize what we want for our spiritual growth this year and renew our determinations. Let’s pump out those creative juices and find fellowship with a community of like-minded believers. This can be the year you finish strong and make good on the things you began.
“The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.” Ecclesiastes 7:8
and, “Commit tot he Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” Proverbs 16:3
What is a Vision Board?
A vision board is a fun is a board or poster that visually displays the things you desire or dream about. It’s fun to make and is a helpful tool because when you see it every day, you can be reminded of and motivated to accomplish the things you decided to do.
Please feel free to bring your own craft supplies, poster boards, magazines, stickers, etc. We will have supplies available as well.
Join us as we look at our Cory Johnson Program for Post-Traumatic Healing (CJP) trauma work through the lens of literary imagination. Activists, intellectuals and artists throughout contemporary history have eluded to the beloved community as a place and mindset of grace filled justice and reconciliation. Through the words of Dr. Martin Luther King and literary artists including the incomparable Tony Morrison, Reverend Liz Walker presents a meditation on CJP as the model of that beloved community, a groundbreaking antidote for these troubled times.
