FAITH WILL HOST AN EXCLUSIVE SCREENING of Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, directed by Nick Searcy. This movie depicts the bone-chilling realization of the practices of abortion. The movie is based on real events, detailing the rise and ultimate fall of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor who operated a clinic out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Without giving away climactic parts, it’s worth noting that people as young as 15 years old, without proper training, were working, and performing procedures in the clinic. The screening will be at 1:00 PM and 5:00 PM on Sunday, January 20th, in our gym. Please invite you friends and neighbors to attend. A free will offering will aid the ministry of the South Texas Pregnancy Care Center. Refreshments will be available.
