‘GOD’ coming to the Brock

Published 9:39 am Thursday, May 21, 2015

The non-profit, Christian organization, Serving Him Ministry is sponsoring and organizing a Davie County presentation of the faith based play GOD.

The play is made up of a cast and crew from several Piedmont churches, and has a large representation of those actors from Davie County.

The play will be presented at the Brock Performing Arts Center in Mocksville. Three shows, over two days, will take place on Friday, May 29 and Saturday, May 30. There will be a 7 p.m. show each of the two days and a special, Saturday, May 30 show at 10 a.m.

“Over the past few years we have brought a couple of wonderful play productions such as, “Caught Up” and “Journey to Heaven” to multiple venues around the Piedmont areas,” says Mike Drayton of the Serving Him Ministry. “We are thrilled to once again offer a faith and family friendly production to the folks in Davie County and be back in one of the gems in our area, that being, the Brock Performing Arts Center. We had fantastic crowds last time we were in the Brock Center and look forward to the same this time around.”

Pastor Daniel Gamble, executive director of the Christian Arts Division of the Serving Him Ministry and script writer for the production, had this to say about GOD. “I wrote the script with the intention of providing a Christian-friendly alternative to many of the things being done in the arts these days. This play will hopefully speak to all, who see it, about GOD, from the beginning, His love for us all and what He did for mankind through Jesus Christ His son.

“The play begins with the Genesis account of creation from the Old Testament of scripture through Christ on the cross and the defeat of satan as spoken of in the New Testament. The play is a multi-media production using timely, powerfully impacting, videos and of course some wonderful acting. It is our hope, our prayer, that area churches, Christian groups and other faith based organizations use this play as an outreach event opportunity,” Gamble said.

“This play does have a pretty sizable cost associated with it and ticket sales will be the main source of covering expenses,” says Drayton. “We could really use the help, in selling tickets, of anyone who enjoys seeing these kinds of Christian activities put on. We ask for folks to talk up this play and to organize groups and come out and personally witness GOD. Even with the expenses in front of us, we still wanted to keep ticket prices affordable for all.”

Tickets are $12 at the ticket office. Groups of 10 or more can get a discounted price of $10 per ticket by contacting Drayton at 751-7661 or emailing requests to mdrayton@mocksville.com.

Many area Pastors have been announcing the details, for this GOD production, to their respective congregations and have flyers up on community boards as well as having placed word of the play in their church bulletins.

Play organizers wanted all to know that the scheduled performances, while intended for most, that due to some topics discussed, recommends this production for those at least age 8 or so and older. They wanted everyone to know that this will be a general seating event so it is suggested to arrive 30 minutes before the show time.
