Now Showing: FLYWHEEL
Jay Austin wants to sell used cars in the worst way…and that’s exactly how he does business at his dealership. Promising much more that he can ever deliver, he’ll do whatever it takes to sell a car. His manipulative ways permeate all of his relationships…even his wife and son know they can’t trust him. But as Jay works on restoring a classic convertible, he begins to see that God is working on restoring him as well. Coming face-to-face with the reality of how he truly conducts himself, Jay Austin begins the ride of his life as he commits to honoring God with his business, his relationships and his life!
Flywheel is the first movie produced by Sherwood Pictures, the moveimaking ministry of a Georgia church that went on to produce Facing the Giants in 2006, and Fireproof in 2008. Flywheel offers the same faith-filled warmth and humor and it will have you laughing and crying once again!
Bring a snack to share
and if you’d like,
bring your own comfortable chair!
