Corrie ten Boom is coming to Trinity Fellowship on Wednesday, Feb. 29, at 6:30 pm. She will share her story, faith, and World War II concentration camp experiences. Many of you have read her compelling autobiographical book The Hiding Place—now you can meet her in person!
Oops. What I meant to say is Evelyn Hinds is coming to Trinity to portray Corrie ten Boom (she does such an authentic job you will think you are seeing and hearing Corrie herself). Her dramatic presentation will be held in the sanctuary at 6:30 pm following an extra special meal from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in the fellowship hall. Unlike other Wednesday night dinners, the Feb. 29 meal will be served on Leap Day. If you miss it you will have to wait four long years before you get another opportunity.
Oops again. What I said above is true, but the special thing about this meal is that the youth are serving a special menu as a fundraiser for their Summer 2012 Homeland Mission Trip. The meal will feature Savory Garlic Chicken, Green Beans, Mashed Potatoes and Divinely Chocolate Brownies. You will want to make reservations for this exceptional dinner. Sign up in the fellowship hall after church on Feb. 19 and 26, or call the Church Office. Prepaid reservations are $6 per adult and $3 per child. At the door on Feb. 29, the meal will be $8 per adult and $4 per child as long as availability lasts.
Support the youth’s Homeland Mission Trip by bringing your family and neighbors to the dinner theater event.
TFC Missions Team member Kelsa Waite comments, “Having seen Evelyn’s theater ministry last fall, I had a strong desire for my TFC family to experience, as I did, God’s continuing work through Corrie ten Boom’s life.” She continues, “During World War II Corrie ten Boom and her family hid Jews in their home in Holland until the family was arrested and put in a concentration camp. After the war, as a Nazi holocaust survivor Corrie traveled internationally sharing the remarkable story of God’s hand upon every detail of her life. Evelyn’s accurate and moving portrayal of Corrie’s example of love, faith, hope, perseverance and forgiveness was used by the Holy Spirit to touch my heart.”
TFC has invited Evelyn Hinds to present Corrie’s life in Christ as a gift of encouragement to us as we move forward in God’s plan for the body of Christ at TFC. As Corrie said, “We are a glove that must be filled with the Holy Spirit of God to do the work He has planned for us.”
Set aside the evening of Feb. 29 for this inspirational presentation.
Kelsa quoted one of Corrie’s well known gems. Corrie ten Boom shared much of her wisdom in her writing. One example is, “Don’t bother to give God instructions; just report for duty.”
