A family-friendly animated feature that follows closely John Bunyan's masterpiece by the same title. This film is based on John Bunyan's epic masterpiece, The Pilgrim's Progress, which is among the most popular books of all time and one of the most important stories of our faith.
Second only to the Bible in total copies and translations, this powerful allegory helps families understand the spiritual journey is the most important journey in life, as well as the importance of sticking to the path, even when the journey gets difficult.

The hidden gem of The Pilgrim's Progress is that it reveals the journey of all mankind who desire to reach God. It is the journey of every believer. It is your journey. It is as true today as it was the day Bunyan penned it in a dark, damp prison cell. Steve Cleary, Revelation Media, CEO/Founder

Dialmycalls.com
Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for quicker, easier form of communication.  Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin.  DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, Dialmycalls.com will be used.  If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.
