This weekend: American heritage film series begins in Villa Rica

507px-Washington_at_Prayer_1928_Issue-2cThis weekend Wesley Chapel Methodist Church of Villa Rica will begin a series of videos showcasing America’s Christian heritage. The “American Heritage” video series is produced by historian David Barton and covers the Christian foundations of many American institutions, the religious faith of the founders, and the current movement toward secularization of U.S. history.

David Barton is the founder and president of Wallbuilders, an organization dedicated to preserving and presenting American history “with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built.” Barton has won many awards and honors including a listing in Who's Who in Education, the DAR's Medal of Honor, and the George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, as well as several Angel Awards, Telly Awards, and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval.

Barton has written numerous books on U.S. history. These include “the Bulletproof George Washington,” “Separation of Church and State: What the Founders Meant,” and “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White.” His most recent book is “the Jefferson Lies: Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson” coauthored with Glenn Beck earlier this year. He has also written a home school curriculum called “Foundations of Character.”

The American Heritage video series will begin this Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at the Wesley Chapel Methodist Church. The church is located at 2345 Rockmart Road (Highway 101 South) in Villa Rica. Admission to the video series is free. Childcare and refreshments will be provided for a small fee. Proceeds will benefit the Men Through Christ ministry at Wesley Chapel.
