ALTON — Have you ever had a really big problem? The kind of problem that just grows and grows, becoming so overwhelming that it just feels like a giant looming over you?
Brown Street Baptist Church’s spring musical “Giant Killer” tackles these problems head-on. It follows the story of Dr. Richard Heart, a young, first-year doctor who has a giant problem. Heart is being bullied by an older, more experienced doctor at the hospital where he works, and Heart soon becomes afraid of standing up for what he believes in, specifically his faith in Jesus Christ.
To help Heart overcome his fears and learn what courage is all about, the Patch the Pirate crew piles in Professor Lambourghini’s Model-T Ford time machine to take a trip into Bible times and meet David, the shepherd boy. David teaches Heart and the crew how to have bravery by trusting in the Lord as his shepherd and guide. Suddenly, David is faced with the biggest test of his courage yet — a face-to-face meeting with Goliath the giant. Will David trust the Lord to help him defeat this giant? And will Heart face his own fears and replace his chicken heart with the heart of a lion?
Join Brown Street Baptist Church for this free family-friendly musical at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 9 and 10. Children of all ages will enjoy the music, humor and overall message of how to face their own giants.
