The on-screen event, scheduled for Tues. Oct. 25, is actually a presentation of a sold-out gathering taped earlier this summer in New York City's Madison Square Garden. Interviews and back-stage footage are part of the package.

The worship night was one of several held in large venues around the country over the past year, including The Forum in Los Angeles.

The theme's subtitle is "An Evening of Unity and Prayer for Our Country" and it comes in the midst of hotly contested political campaigns and troubling world events.

"The church should be about prayer," said Tomlin in announcing the special event. "Worship Night in America will bring together the entire church from all backgrounds and regions to do what matters most – worship our Father and unite in prayer for our country."

At press time, just one West Michigan movie theater had signed on for the event: Celebration Cinema South on 1506 Eastport Dr. in the M-6/Kalamazoo Ave. SE area. Tickets are $12 for the single 7 p.m. showing and are available on line at https://www.tugg.com/events/25239 .

Additional screenings and theaters will be added as ticket demand dictates. Site requests can be made via Tomlin's website at www.christomlin.com.

There have been similar faith-based presentations on the big screen. Last year the Women of Faith organization offered its farewell tour in movie theatres nationwide.


The award-winning Tomlin is one of the top composers of worship anthems sung in North American churches, including songs such as "How Great Is Our God," "Jesus Messiah" and the more recent "Good, Good Father" which is nominated for a 2016 Dove Award as Song of the Year.

Tomlin's forthcoming CD "Never Lose Sight," officially releases Oct. 21. Fans purchasing tickets for the film experience can also get the new album at a discount price.

Other musical guests on the program are Matt Redman, Matt Maher, Phil Wickham, Kim Walker-Smith and Tasha Cobbs.
