Briarwood Church shares message of giving

The adult choir at Briarwood Baptist Church on Hillview Drive found an interesting way to share the message of giving during the Christmas season a dinner-theater production that showed charity sometimes comes from the hearts of the impoverished.
Adult choir director Buddy McElroy said the three-act play is the choir's fourth dinner-theater production. It was presented Monday and Tuesday night.
The play, "The Richest Family in Town," is based on a true story. Set in the 1940s, it is about a mother and her three children. The father has died, leaving the family struggling.
Two weeks later in the play, an African missionary comes seeking $150 needed for a new mission roof. The family gives him the money and when he asks what name to put in a thank-you letter to the church, the family tells him it's anonymous.
Proceeds from the play will be used to fund a ministry-related trip.
McElroy said the choir has been rehearsing since September, and played to full houses Monday and Tuesday.
