Welcome to MPT's Friday Freeview screening!
Jason Welcome - Finding Fellowship Screening
Produced by Jason Green and Kisha Davis, this film shares an important story of the unlikely merger of three racially segregated churches in a Gaithersburg, MD neighborhood just as racial tensions gripped the nation. Facing longstanding financial difficulties and reeling from the recent assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the three congregations still came together in the fall of 1968.
Thanks For Joining Us
