1. DCBTF New Works Reading Series Presents "Standing In a Need of Prayer"
Date: Friday, June 26, 2015 @ 7:00pm
Location: Washington, DC

Everyone has skeletons that they wish would stay buried …but we all know that they usually don’t.
James Miller is the newly appointed pastor of a small church facing foreclosure. His greatest challenge has been to win over his congregation of mostly senior citizens, who are short on patience and long on opinions of how they think he should do his job.

A long-held secret tests the pastor’s faith and shake things up as the skeletons start to fall out of the closet, one by one. Will he stand strong in the face of opposition or will he buckle and give in?
“Standing in the Need of Prayer” will make you double-check the lock on your own closet of secrets to make sure your skeletons are secure…this production is full of twists and surprises and is not to be missed.
