Evangel Community Church has seen a lot of change in the past couple years, and it is gearing up for another first next weekend. Pastor Travis Williams says that the modification of the old Shopko site on Memorial Drive is taking shape nicely. For a while, it felt like something closer to camping, but the sprawling big box store now has a defined worship area, and a growing community center feel.
On December 10th and 11th, a movie screen will be set up to show Christmas with The Chosen: The Messengers. Williams says the group is liked by several of his parishioners.
The film tells the story of Christmas from the perspective of Joseph and Mary. The Friday evening show begins at 6:30 and childcare is available. There is also a Saturday matinee at 1:30. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the church’s website.
