Born to an ordinary life in an ordinary town in rural Alabama, Rosa J. Young was anything but ordinary.
With a passion for helping others, educating children and sharing the Gospel, Rosa accomplished extraordinary things for her community and the kingdom of God. She was instrumental in founding and promoting 30 Lutheran elementary schools and 35 Lutheran congregations in Alabama’s “Black Belt.” Her legacy is unparalleled as an educator, confessor and church planter for Christ and His Church.
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has produced The First Rosa, a movie that will enlighten the Church to Rosa’s remarkable history, initiate and invoke the vocation of new professional church workers, and inspire the establishment of new Rosa J. Young Academies.
Circuit 4 of the New Jersey District cordially invites you to attend a premiere showing of The First Rosa
DATE & TIME: Saturday, May 21 - 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
