At the Movies 2017

Whether filmmakers know it or not, God’s fingerprints can be found all over their stories. We’ll take a few of the most recent popular films and look at how we can find God at the movies.

Week 1 Message- Hidden Figures

Date- August 19th & 20th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- Matthew 5:14-16 (NASB)

Speaker- Rusty Coram

Every once in a while we discover a story that calls us to rise up and take hold of who we are and Whose we are. Hidden Figures is the story of some very unsuspecting human champions who have a lot to teach us about honoring God regardless of our circumstances.

Week 2 Message- Hacksaw Ridge

Date- August 26th & 27th, 2017

Key Verse(s)- Acts 24:16

Speaker- Rusty Coram

When an unarmed conscientious objector runs straight into the heat of the battle to save as many lives as possible, it must be for love. Not human love, but the deeper love of the One who calls each of us to live out our convictions with courage, humility and grace.

Week 3 Message- Beauty and the Beast

Date- September 2nd & 3rd, 2017

Key Verse- 

Speaker- Stephanie Schleyer

This is a modern adaptation of a fairy tale that is…well… as old as time. In this film, many smaller vignettes combine to illustrate one overarching theme – the power of sacrificial love. This certainly isn’t a new concept for followers of Christ, It is, however, a reminder to us all that we are always called to put others before ourselves.
