Theatre Arts Weekend

Acting our Faith: Theatre Arts Weekend at Church of the Holy Communion
With Friends of the Groom

Friends of the Groom theatre troupe will travel to Memphis to lead the series of activities February 10-12. The events include a Friday evening dinner and performance and Saturday morning interactive workshops. The activities are intentionally designed to be multi-generational. Members of the troupe will also play the starring roles in the Sunday morning formation offerings on February 12, and they will add special elements to the Sunday morning 10:30 a.m. worship service.   


What’s this all about?  

”Acting our Faith” is a weekend of fellowship and fun for all ages, centered on the power of storytelling. Led by members of a Christian theater troupe called Friends of the Groom, the interactive and intergenerational activities help each person grow in Christ, watch, think, and laugh. Come enjoy this delightful time with friends old and new!
