Nearly 50,000 people viewed The Heart of Man in theaters last month (including a group from CHPC), and many are being utterly changed by their encounter with the Father’s overwhelming love in the midst of shame.  So many people were impacted by the message of this film, and so many theaters sold out that The Heart of Man will be showing again on Tuesday, October 17th.  It will be showing at Oakley Station, Deerfield Towne Center and Fairfield Commons at 7:00 PM.  The film is rated PG13 so is not appropriate for young children.  To order tickets or to view the trailer visit
