Summer at the Movies

Sitting down and watching a movie, especially during COVID-19, can be a therapeutic reality. Many people look for messages that might be found in movies. During this summer sermon series, join us as we look at movie themes that help us connect our faith with the world in a more tangible way.

July 26 | Onward | Luke 17:20-25
Follow the adventures of brothers Ian and Barley, who are given one day to spend with their father who had previously died. In this futuristic film, we find that wishing for what we do not have often leaves us not living in the present with the life that we do have. Join us as we talk about being fully present in your story and experiencing the kingdom of God in the now.

August 2 | Harriet | 2 Corinthians 3:12-18
Many people have heard the story of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. Harriet’s story is one of great perseverance and strength. Join us as we look at the ways in which we might persevere.

August 9 | Inside Out | Nehemiah 7:73-8:12
This movie looks at how our internal emotions can affect our outward behaviors and interactions with everyone around us, within the context of our faith. We will take a look at Joy and how it can coexist harmoniously with fear, anger, sadness and disgust. 

August 16 | Little Women | Luke 14:7-14
Little Women is a story of four sisters who go through tremendous hardship. It is also a story of great service to others going through hardship in their lives. Christ calls us to humble ourselves to serve others in our community.
