Heritage Nazarene Church will host its annual Tragedy into Triumph Series featuring well-known personalities on March 13-16 at the church.
This series will show how God can bring triumphant change into our lives even in the midst of tragedy. The Event is free to the public, and the doors will open each night at 6:15 p.m. Each speaker will focus on real world tragedies that can happen to any of us, and each speaker will be live and in person in Circleville on the night they speak.
Additionally this year, Tragedy into Triumph is being broadcast nationwide live from Circleville into 27 different states and two Canadian provinces. This event has grown into a movement around the entire nation, and it originated right here in Circleville.
The Lineup and speaking times are:
