Come join us in the Immanuel Lutheran Church Gym to view the most expensive silent film ever made, Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ. This film was directed by the cutely named Fred Niblo and stars the exotic talents of Roman Navarro, It cost $3.9million to make in 1925. This makes it the most expensive silent film ever made. Most people are probably familiar with the 1959 remake, but this version is every bit as good. Go back in time and view the film accompanied by Dave Weesner on Colorado’s Largest Theater Organ!
Erstwhile childhood friends, Judah Ben-Hur and Messala meet again as adults, this time with Roman officer Messala as conqueror and Judah as a wealthy, though conquered, Israelite. A slip of a brick during a Roman parade causes Judah to be sent off as a galley slave, his property confiscated and his mother and sister imprisoned. Years later, as a result of his determination to stay alive and his willingness to aid his Roman master, Judah returns to his homeland an exalted and wealthy Roman athlete. Unable to find his mother and sister, and believing them dead, he can think of nothing else than revenge against Messala.

We now offer a Sunday School class for our smallest children (two years and under). It is called “Parents and Twos.” This program allows parents or grandparents to encourage and nurture their children as they learn about Jesus together. In this class, the children learn about our Lord and Savior and are able to watch their parents/grandparents make church and Sunday School a very important part of their family life. All Sunday School classes begin at 10:45 am on Sunday mornings. We look forward to seeing you and your little one! Direct any questions to Marlys at 661-4747.
