126

Dr. Dennis Karp, a representative of Chosen People Ministries, will speak at Colonial Baptist Church on Sunday, March 26 during the 6:30 p.m. worship service. The program being presented is “Messiah in the Passover.”

Chosen People Ministries is an over 100-year-old mission that was founded in 1894 by Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian rabbi who came to believe that Jesus was the Messiah of Israel. From humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York, Chosen People Ministries has grown into a worldwide ministry with outreach centers in Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Ukraine and the United States.

Throughout its long history, Chosen People Ministries has been unwavering in its commitment to bring the Gospel message of salvation in Jesus “to the Jew first and to the Gentile” throughout the world. In stressing the Jewish roots of Christian faith, Chosen People Ministries hopes to make the message of the Messiah more accessible to Jewish people and also to help Christian believers achieve a greater appreciation of the Jewish basis of their own faith traditions.

This meeting is open to the public and Colonial Baptist Church would like to invite the Christian and Jewish community to attend. This is a free presentation and a nursery will be provided. A love offering for Chosen People Ministries will be received.

Colonial Baptist Church is located at 221 Hillcrest Street in Blue Ridge. For more information, call 977-5683.
