This week Saturday, September 13 at Fourth Presbyterian Church (126 E Chestnut St, Chicago), we’re partnering with Level Ground– the organization that created the world’s first faith based LGBTQ film festival- to bring you the ONE DAY ONLY Chicago stop on the 2014 Level Ground Road Show!
The afternoon will showcase a screening of Kidnapped For Christ (trailer above), a recent documentary that has gained international attention. Later, we’ll be joined by Derek Webb and Hello Industry for an evening concert. Discussion, an interactive art space, snacks, and short films will be available throughout the afternoon.
Check out the schedule below and come for the whole day or just stop by for an hour or two. See you there!
