July 1, 2021  

At The Movies is a fun summer series where we show movie clips from popular current films of this past year along with a message that connects popular movies with scripture. You probably don't usually look to movies for life lessons, but take our word for it: sit back, relax, and hear a different perspective on how popular films can point us toward the gospel.

Join us as we kick-off a 4-week sermon series, At the Movies, this Sunday with the message "Harriet."

About "Harriet": "Harriet" is a 2019 biographical movie about the life of abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The movie depicts Tubman's escape from slavery and transformation into one of America's greatest heroes, whose courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history. And her story points us to the gospel in so many ways.
