Description: As you may already be aware, January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. On Sunday, January 25th, MadeForThem along with Mollie's House will be showing a FREE screening of a documentary on sex trafficking in america. The film was directed and narrated by Natalie Grant and highlights 6 organizations who are have safe houses across the nation. The event is hosted by People's Church @ 6pm.
After, the film we will have a panel discussion and open Q&A with local experts, and personal testimonies. We will share opportunities for you to engage your congregation as a whole, or small groups. This is an epidemic that is in our community and the church must have a voice in it. Detective Fries, who sits on our board said there is anywhere from 300-500 girls available for sex for sale on any given night.
Please join with us. We CAN make a difference, but know that the greatest impact comes through the power of the unity of the church.
Here is a video trailer you may show your congregation and an attached flyer you may distribute. Please let us know if you have any questions. We would also like to know if you are promoting this event, and in what capacity so we can plan accordingly.

There will be multiple opportunities for community involvement, but the In Plain Sight Team has also created a 31 Dy Devotional and Study Guide.
Designed to accompany the IN PLAIN SIGHT documentary on sex trafficking in the United States and IN PLAIN SIGHT music album, this 31 Day Devotional and Group Study Guide will help you understand and embrace God’s heart for the vulnerable and broken in our world. Although the workbook can be used simply as a personal devotional, it is designed for a group to use as a five-week study. (Foreword by Natalie Grant)
Starting with the viewing of the documentary at a public screening or as a group, each of the five group study guides are followed up with daily devotions.
