‘Bearing Witness’ series to return to Trinity United Church of Christ

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Trinity United Church of Christ, at 30 W. North St. in Waynesboro, announced the return of the four-part series, “Bearing Witness.”

It will begin Sunday, Oct. 28, at 6 p.m. in the church’s Harbaugh Hall with the presentation of the film “After Innocence.”

“After Innocence” tells the story of the exonerated — innocent men wrongfully convicted and then imprisoned for decades who were released after proving their innocence using DNA evidence. “After Innocence” shows that the human toll of wrongful imprisonment can last far longer than the sentences served.

The program will begin with a light meal, followed by a viewing of the documentary at 7 p.m.

The event is free.

The second program in the series — “Freedom Fighter” — is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m.
