Area churches present Michael Furchert, Christian Speaker, as he shares his family's inspiring account of faith throughout the time of Nazi Germany at the Sondheim Center on Monday, January 20 at 7 p.m. Free and open to the public; free will offerings welcome.
An inspiring account of a family that would not let life's circumstances keep them down. Persecuted by Hitler and separated by the Berlin Wall, one family held true to their faith in God and experienced a journey from trials to triumph, from defeat to victory.
Michael Furchert grew up behind the Berlin Wall under an atheist dictatorship, yet in his family he learned about the love of God and the hope they found in Jesus Christ.
This inspiring account of a family that overcame life's difficulties under two dictatorships and rose to a joyful witness of Christ's strength, has encouraged listeners to trust in God's promise to be more than conquerors.
Michael will share what kept his family strong in trying times, throughout Nazi Germany, WWII and Communism; what helped him to make tough choices as child and teenager behind the Berlin Wall; and why it is so important to build one's life on a firm foundation that will last.
