God's Giggle Gang Clown Ministry

God’s Giggle Gang is comprised of Christians from a variety of denominations.  The purpose of “GGG” is to spread the word of God in a different method as well as spreading joy in the world.  During the Lenten season “The Passion” is presented to groups and churches in a serious and reverent method, unlike the type of clowning that is done throughout the rest of the year.  This very moving pantomime and musical is a depiction of Christ’s crucifixion.  Christ is represented by one white face clown.  This well loved, often requested presentation is now in its 12th Lenten season.  Join us for worship on Sunday, April 6 at the 11 AM service.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity!
