Movie Night - Facing The Giants
Tonight @ 7 pm
From the award-winning producers of Flywheel and Fireproof comes an action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team ... and himself.
In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.
However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field ...and off. With God, all things are possible.
Bring a snack to share and your own comfortable chair if you like!

In purchasing a memorial bulletin cover, you will help defray some of the church's operating costs and at the same time memorialize or recognize a loved one.

Please send this information to the church office along with your payment.
