Nora Brooks Historical Presentations:   Lottie Moon

Friday, October 13, 2017

7:30 pm  Ashe Civic Center

 

Nora Brooks brings the life of missionary Lottie Moon to life through first-person living history performances.

Lottie Moon is remembered today for the offering taken by the Southern Baptist Convention every December to support foreign missions around the world. But her story is so much more than just that. Listen as Lottie tells of her birth and education in Virginia, her independent spirit and her conversion to sacrificial living dedicated to Jesus Christ. Lottie served as a missionary in turn-of-the-century China for 40 years, testifying to God’s love for all mankind. This program is a story of the Civil War era south and the birth of the Southern Baptist Convention, but more importantly what the impact one life given to God’s service can have on eternity.

Each performance is biographical in content, fully researched and presented with humor, drama and passion. Nora presents in full period dress and thrills to interact with the audience. Questions on the characters and the era in general are welcomed and lead to lively discussions about the many facets of this time in American history. Audiences of all ages will enjoy this step back in time.

Tickets are $15.00 and available through the Ashe County Arts Council (336-846-2787) beginning on September 13. Reserved seating is available. Student tickets are $5.00. Includes applicable sales tax.
