The Community United Methodist Church of Oldsmar, Florida for the last several years has put on a dinner theater fundraiser to raise money to help Haiti.
The Gospel Never Changes
Their 1999 program was entitled "The Gospel Never Changes" and was put on by the choir. The setting was a mall -- the characters were trying to work their way through changes in our social structures from joggers to punk -- the judgments, the values. The choir interlaced beautiful old traditional gospel songs throughout the play filled with a combination of laughter and deep reflections about how some things change, but God never does.
The Number's Game
In 1998 Community United Methodist Church performed a dinner/theatre with a play called "The Number's Game" a sequel to Possum on the Half Shell both written by Pastor Sharon Patch and her husband, Jim Patch
