Church members rehearse gift for community

December 15, 2005

Albany- With so much of our holiday season focused on giving and getting presents, sometimes the real story of Christmas gets lost in the retail rush.

That's why Agape Deliverance Center on Martin Luther King Drive in Albany will perform "The Gift," a play about a church and a family caught in a dilemma about gifts.

Church members say the play is a different way to hear the Gospel.

"But we just believe that God will use the play to bring salvation to those who hear and also just refresh the real meaning of Christmas," said Pastor Michael Odom.

They'll perform "The Gift" Saturday at 3 p.m. and Sunday at 6 p.m. It's open to anyone in the community.
