Re-Creation This Sunday!!!

Don’t Miss This One!!!

 

Appearing at our 9:30 A.M. Service!  Arrive early to get a good seat.  Show starts promptly.

Re-Creation began in 1976…when Hugh Brooks, the founder of the group, was an instructor at the Pennsylvania State University. While visiting practicum students, he realized that very few institutions have opportunity to benefit from the therapeutic value of live professional entertainment. Concerned, he organized Re-Creation to offer this service to state centers, prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, and other care facilities.
Entertainers were enlisted, and Re-Creation immediately began institutional performances in Pennsylvania.  Within a very short time Re-Creation was asked to tour for the USO, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers were added to the schedule.  Re-Creation assumed full responsibility for the national VA program in 1983, and since then has attempted to raise necessary funding and present shows for Medical Centers nation-wide. Re-Creation now presents more than 150 shows yearly in VA Medical Centers in all 50 states.
The young people in Re-Creation are not paid for their service. They give up at least a year of their lives to travel the country entertaining the men and  women in our VA Medical Centers. Arriving at the VA facilities four hours before show time… they set up…change into costumes…and visit hospital rooms and wards. Then they assist patients to the show area, perform for them, return them to their rooms, pack up and load equipment, and drive on, averaging 300 miles a day…
The Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge cited the young people of Re- Creation as “America’s Ambassadors to Hospitalized Veterans” for providing the only program of its kind in America. Institutional entertainment sponsored by Re-Creation is more than a show, it is a unique, caring, personal touch which…
– transports concerned, dedicated, and talented young people into hospital wards and rooms…
– reaches out to patriots who think they have been forgotten by their country…
– and offers a therapy that medical personnel acclaim as an invaluable contribution to the healing process.
Re-Creation USA, Inc. is a non-profit corporation, now under the direction of Jay and Mary Muller. Re-Creation provides more than 300 shows annually in all 50 states. The group has performed for the President of the United States, as well as other leaders and dignitaries.

THE SACRED PROGRAM is designed as a worship service and features both traditional and contemporary styles, sing-a-long hymns and children’s songs, dramatic works and original music. This year’s program, “CHANGING OF THE GUARD” is a live worship experience unlike any other! Dynamic vocal blend combined with a lively, yet sensitive state-of-the-art sound…Tasteful, appropriate presentation…Light staging / Fun elements…Congregational participation…Biblically referenced songs!
Re-Creation operates on a free-will offering for church programs. This offering is taken during the program and due attention is given to the group members’ missionary status (they are all volunteers) and the organization’s continuing dedication to minister to the sick and needy. Most churches offer the group members a meal. Housing is typically not an issue but may be for various situations.
