On Sunday, Feb. 26 Bethel Church in Sun Valley will offer a showing of the film “War Room” (rated PG).

Voigts Returns to CV United Methodist Church
For those who were fortunate to have been present at last year’s Bible Cabaret, they will be thrilled to know that Reverend Jane Voigts will be returning to Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church with her uniquely inspired comedy revue. Some say that Christians who aspire to living up to Gospel ideals should have a Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other. Rev. Jane does that and somehow manages to have a rubber chicken in another hand.
In these times when politicians tout their “Christian Credentials,” we are skeptical of the whole package and are tempted to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Rev. Jane is one who will help us see the baby in that murky gray and will inspire us to save and nurture that baby, that focus of hope, love, and justice. Sounds like just what we need.
Mark your calendars for Friday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 7) in the Fellowship Hall at Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church, 2700 Montrose Ave, Montrose. Her monologues will be well complemented by sets from the CVUMC Band featuring Ricky Cosentino, led by Barb Catlin Bergeron – musicians whose passion is matched by their professional chops.
A $20 donation at the door is suggested. Refreshments will be served.
This memorable evening is sponsored by Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church, The Montrose Peace Vigil And Read and Practice Peacemaking.
