Summer Movie Nights are back!
This summer our Summer Movie Nights will return. In years past we enjoyed meeting together on Wednesday nights to watch some fun films, then we would gather on Sunday mornings to discuss spiritual themes found in the film. Although we had to take a break because of the COVID pandemic, we are excited to start this tradition back up. This year we will be screening five films in July and August. Here are a list of the moves we will be watching.
