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.
