In celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, Christ Lutheran Church is hosting a special screening of the new Martin Luther film "A Return to Grace." No matter what your faith or denomination, this film is a chance to learn more about Martin Luther and this pivotal time in the history of the Christian Church. This entertaining new film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, secret hideouts, and life-or-death showdowns. At the same time, it's a story about the most important questions of life. "Who am I?" "What is my purpose?" "How do I get right with God?" Filmed in historic locations across Europe, this movie brings Luther’s story to life with exquisite attention to detail. It’s a way to strengthen our faith by revisiting the birth of the Protestant Reformation, and a chance to share that experience with others. View the trailer at https://wels.net/reformation500/ or https://vimeo.com/194757880 IMPORTANT: All tickets must be purchased in advance by May 17th. Tickets can be purchased at a special website set up for the screening: http://clarksville.newluthermovie.com/

GET READY GAITHERSBURG, MD, BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE! CIRQUE ITALIA, THE FIRST TRAVELING WATER CIRCUS IS COMING TO TOWN WITH A SPECTACULAR SHOW THAT YOU CAN’T MISS! Cirque Italia has grown to the point where the next logical step can only be to expand operations and double our presence at the national level. In response to our wonderful fans all over the U.S., and with over 90% of shows being sold out, NOW is the perfect time for a substantial investment. Beginning in 2017, Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, introduces a second unit, the Gold Unit: a luxurious experience where technology and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show. This new performance will feature an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Cirque Italia is ready to provide a breathtaking experience. This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent - the result is simply out of this world! The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not going to be any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of our strongest assets. Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy smart and well-thought out comedy, Alex the clown thrills while taking an acrobatic journey on the trampoline. Our Argentinian twin jugglers (with a Guinness World Record in their pockets) can handle all kinds of objects in the air, even fire! There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist as she bends in ways you never would have imagined. She makes it seem so natural, you might end up trying it in yoga class. Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups. This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows. The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country. Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true.

The Church of the Ascension is blessed with both a beautiful and historic place to worship. During the Civil War (1861-1865), "The Old Stone Church" was the first designated Union Army surgical hospital. The surgical hospital received major casualties from the Battle of Blackburns Ford (1861), and during First Manassas (1861), and Second Manassas (1862). The Old Stone Church, as a hospital, was traded back and forth between the Confederate and Union Forces. Servicemen returning from WWII built the Parish Hall in 1944-45! All are welcome! If you have served this great nation, we invite you to wear your uniform in recognition of your service. Please join us for our 2nd Memorial Day Celebration!

God is raising up a remnant out of the darkness. If you are being tested, experiecing a shake up, or going through a storm, and you are still hungrily seeking what God has to say; following his word and standing(or kneeling), or laid out on the floor in prayer in the face of every attack of the enemy of your soul, then you are part of the remnant. Please join me at my free event as we seek the face of the lord together in order to discern YOUR specific purpose in the midst of the storm. ** The event is free but registration is required. For more information please email me at mabbey@coachmercy.com or call 703-863-0246.
