Nov 1 - International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

On Sunday, Nov. 1, Christian believers around the world will recognize the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP)—a global prayer movement on behalf of Christians who boldly witness for Jesus Christ at any cost.

In advance of IDOP, The Voice of the Martyrs has released a short film highlighting the story of Janette, a Christian mother from the Central African Republic.

VOM’s 2020 IDOP short film, Janette: Central African Republic, is a dramatic portrayal of how persecuted Christians in the Central African Republic have been displaced from their homes and villages because of civil war and Islamist violence.

Janette’s story is not uncommon as thousands of Christian women and men have been driven from their homes in attacks like these in the Central African Republic over the past eight years.

Nov 13 thru 22 - Christian Community Theatre presents Cinderella

Christian Community Theatre presents Cinderella 

Description:

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Cinderella follows the well known story of a sweet orphan who is harshly mistreated by her step-mother and step-sisters, serving as a dirty servant in their home. Under those circumstances, a shabby and neglected Cinderella doesn't stand much of a chance of attending the King's royal ball -- let alone captivate the handsome Prince -- unless she turns to a Fairy Godmother who has quite a few impossible tricks up her sleeve. Nevertheless, will the wronged heroin ever find peace -- and with it -- her own Prince Charming? This classic story is adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.

Free2Succeed Mentorship program

Are you looking to engage in one on one discipleship? Why not join the Free2Succeed Mentorship Program, an Idaho Department of Corrections Community Mentor Program designed to match community mentors with adult felons who are transitioning to communities throughout Idaho. These may be incarcerated individuals preparing for release or those who are currently on supervision but are seeking some additional support.

Free2Succeed is focused on community mentoring and is not inside an institution. The goal is to find a mentor for someone who requests one about 90 days before their release.

Old friends are the number one cause for relapse for those coming out of incarceration. Solution--New Friends--like you.  Show a newly released person what real love is. (and of course invite them to church)

If interested, contact Jim Parkinson at 253-820-4776 or apply to be a mentor at idoc.idaho.gov
