It is exciting to announce that we, as a church and faith community, are presently sensing a national (and perhaps global) move of God. America is witnessing pockets of personal and corporate revival breaking out in church services, special gatherings, schools, extended prayer meetings, and powerful times of worship. It is also beginning to extend into individual families and homes. A great example is to look up all that God is presently doing at Asbury Theological Seminary. Christ Wesleyan Church is no exception! God has been showing up in supernatural ways in our gatherings, including special unexpected services of prayer and worship. We have literally witnessed miraculous moments! Oh, that this would always be the environment described in our churches and ministries!
As our Christ Wesleyan Theatre Productions team met this past week, an unexpected conversation began. While we love our traditional theatre season, we were feeling inspired to make room in our schedules and plans for something different right now. The original plan was to produce performances of Arsenic and Old Lace in June of 2023. However, as God began speaking in and through our team, it became apparent that He may have a different agenda. Our team made the decision to put that show on hold until June of 2024, so that the capacity to be obedient to specific new things in this move of God is possible. While our team loves traditional theatre, we love ministry more! It was a unanimous decision to explore other theatrical methods to aid this movement of God in our country. We aren’t totally sure what that looks like yet, but please join us in prayer seeking what God may be asking of us. We are still planning for the November performances of The Sound of Music, 2023, and we are grateful for your understanding as we listen to God’s voice for this coming June. If you have already signed up for an audition for Arsenic and Old Lace, we thank you for any preparations you’ve already made and hope that you’ll shift your focus to November’s musical instead. We are excited for this season of ministry at both our Milton and Sunbury campuses and all the new things that God has in store for both!
Blessings from the Christ Wesleyan Theatre Productions leadership team!
