Local Church Focuses on Middle East Peace

The Middle East is in crisis mode.  Current unrest and national tensions appear to be escalating at an unprecedented pace.

For this reason, Apple Valley Baptist Church has partnered with Light to Israel Ministries to host a special one-day event, Sunday, September 23, 10 am at D.G. Cooley Elementary School.  The occasion will focus on God’s message of peace to all of the children of Abraham – Arab as well as Jew. 

During the special service, those attending will learn of the historical roots of their faith.  Church leaders hope that the educational focus will help the church to understand and replicate God’s love for the peoples of the Middle East.

During the one hour long service, ministry representatives will present “Christ in the Passover,” a 45-minute sermonic demonstration giving insight into what happened in the Upper Room as Jesus ate the Last Supper with His disciples. The speaker will explain the different items of the Passover service and give special emphasis to how they relate to the New Testament account of that last Passover Jesus ate with His disciples.

The event is open to the public and a nursery will be provided for children.  Additional information is available online at www.applevalleybaptist.com.
