The Book of Esther

Dove “Family-Approved”
For All Ages
Dove Review:

This is a wonderful telling of the story of Queen Esther, the woman who saved the Jewish race. This movie chronicles how she saved the Jews from the plot of the advisor to the King of Persia, the evil Haman (Thaao Penghlis). The King, Xerxes (played by Joel Smallbone), vanquishes Queen Vashti because of her disobedience. A contest is arranged for the king to pick his next queen. Under the tutelage of Mordecai (Robert Miano), a Jew, Esther (Jen Lilley), is chosen for her beauty and kindness. Haman plots to be rid of the Jews and Esther can only save her people by going, unbidden, before the king. Will he be moved by her request or angry at her for coming to him without being summoned?

This remarkable movie is well worth viewing and would make an excellent tool for Christian Education. It states in the beginning that a few events have been altered for dramatic purposes but it stays close the scriptural story. It features themes of loyalty, love and sacrifice. We are very pleased to award five Doves, our best rating, to this nicely directed and produced film.

Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 6:00 pm!

Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! We are inviting you to come, share, and join in in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
