Kids of the Kingdom and Cherub Choir musical: "In the Image"

Sunday, March 12, 8:30 and 11:00 am worship services

Mark Burrows' musical, In the Image, features a group of children who have just experienced the story of The Creation. And now they're starting to wonder what it really means to be created in the image of God. Through humorous, earnest exploration, the children discover that being created in the image of God isn't about physical appearance. It's about creativity, faithfulness, responsibility, community, and the ability to find the good in things.
