DVD Study Series – The CHOSEN

Dear friends and members of First Presbyterian Church:

The DVD series “The Chosen” is relatively recent in publication and narrates the impact of Jesus on key persons in the four gospels. The theme comes from Isaiah 43:1 Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.

We began this series on Oct. 24, 2021 at 6:30 PM and will show it continuing through spring of 2022. We encourage you to join viewing it and the discussion following. This series is creatively developed, and we think you will enjoy it as well. This will be offered in person at the Outreach Center, and you may also join us by Zoom (contact fpcb@ptd.net for the link). This series is for the entire family. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Pastor David.

Please note there is a free ‘The Chosen’ download from Google Play or from the App Store — or view at https://watch.angelstudios.com/thechosen.
