A special one-hour presentation regarding the alarming rise of Christian persecution and the loss of religious liberty worldwide will be hosted by volunteers from International Christian Concern (ICC) (www.Persecution.org), a charity dedicated to awareness, advocacy and assistance for the persecuted.

The evening, entitled, “Acts For the Persecuted,” will feature the premiere of a short film, “Sing a Little Louder,” a look at the lack of response to persecution in the past. Specific actions that can be taken by individuals, groups, churches or other organizations will be offered in an effort to help International Christian Concern’s mission to comfort and support victims of persecution worldwide. 

The film premiere and information session will take place at Cranbury United Methodist Church on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 7:00 pm. The church is located at 21 N. Main Street in Cranbury, NJ. There is no admission charge, but donations for International Christian Concern will be accepted.
