Summer Jubilee 2016: Spirituality and Film
For eight weeks this Summer, we'll discuss a different movie every week during our Sunday School hour. Please join us each Sunday at 9:30 am in Fellowship Hall as we explore the spiritual themes in each of these films. Please plan to watch the film prior to our Sunday morning discussion. You may wish to watch the films individually, with others in small gatherings, or with a larger group in the Alan Fuqua Center each Friday night at 7 pm.
Each film is available for rent via Netflix (DVD), and Amazon Video (streaming). *UPDATE* All of these movies are also available for rent at Appleby Branch Library located across the street from the church.
Questions? Please contact Kim Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you! And, see you at the movies!
