AWOL – Adventurous Women Out Late

Saturday, October 29 at 7:30pm

Movie Night at Church


The romantic comedy “About Time” will be the movie of the night!

BYO snacks to enjoy and share this Saturday to the Heritage Room!


The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's (Domhnall Gleeson) father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life so he decides to make his world a better getting a girlfriend (Rachel McAdams). But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift can't save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. From filmmaker Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral), About Time is a comedy about love and time travel, which discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.

During our event sprouts and family members will have the opportunity to tour our worship space and to ask any question they may have. We will be reading Just Help!

We will end our time together with the sprouts of peace song and snack.

We look forward to having you join us on October 22nd! Feel free to bring another family with you! The more the merrier as we help build a more compassionate and inclusive world alongside our Muslim and Jewish siblings.
