This coming Sunday, October 13, First Christian Church of Newport is hosting a screening of The Pink Room, a documentary about sex trafficking in SE Asia and what some organizations are doing about it. The screening will be held at 6:30pm and admission is free. We invite everyone to come and be challenged to care and to do something about this atrocity that is going on all over the world right now.
