“Reel Spirituality” – Wednesday Series

Facilitator:  Wellford Tiller

April 26 — Chariots of Fire (1982)

May 3 — The Mission (1986)

May 10 — Les Miserables (2012)

Movies entertain us.  But they can also make us think and feel.  A film does not have to be specifically ‘Christian’ to help us ‘think Christianly’ about our world.  On these three Wednesday evenings, we will look at clips from the movies listed and discuss the issues they raise for us as people of faith.  While it is not necessary, you may wish to watch the entire film in advance of each discussion.

All are invited to join us, Wednesdays at 6:15pm.

 

Interactive Family Worship

Everyone is invited to participate–kids (of all ages!), youth, families, adults–as we worship together this Sunday morning (5/7/17) in a special interactive worship service, during the Sunday Bible Study hour (9:45-10:30). This will be a partcipatory, hands-on worship experience for families to do together, facilitating inter-generational conversation and fellowship. Come and join us!
