The Chosen – Season 2 (a dramatic series) begins again this WEDNESDAY.

 

Wednesdays at 10am. There will be weekly viewings of this Series. We will watch an episode, (each is approx. one hour) and discuss our thoughts and feelings for about 1/2 an hour after each episode. This story is based on the life and times of Jesus through words from the gospels and through the eyes and lives of the disciples and those who were close to Jesus.
