CornerStone Christian Fellowship is pleased to present The Gospel According to Scrooge, a delightful, fun-filled drama for the entire family! Three performances are scheduled: Friday, November 30th at 7 pm; a special matinee on Saturday, December 1st at 2 pm; and Sunday, December 2nd at 6 pm.

Tight-fisted, cold-hearted, sour, bah-humbugging Ebenezer Scrooge is backed by a cast of more than sixty individuals from various QCA churches. The Gospel According to Scrooge is a musical adaptation of the original Charles Dickens' classic, "A Christmas Carol." Unlike other holiday shows in the area, there is no admission charge. A free-will offering will be taken during the intermission to help with production costs.

Large groups should arrive an hour prior to show time to reserve seating. This program is for children of all ages. Childcare will not be available. Doors open at 5:30 on Friday and Sunday evenings, and at 12:30 on Saturday.

For this production, CornerStone leases the spacious facilities of the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 1800 7th Ave., Moline. For further information call 309-797-9223 or visit cornerstoneqca.com to create a suitable PowerPoint slide for your group.

CornerStone Christian Fellowship meets regularly for worship at 5106 28th Avenue, Moline.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
