HUMC Movie Night - Friday!
November 8, 7:00 p.m.
Beautifully Broken tells the true story of three families impacted by the horror of Rwanda's killing fields—two from Rwanda and one from Nashville, Tennessee.
In many ways, these families could hardly be more different. But as Beautifully Broken unfolds, we see that families everywhere endure trials and hardships. Those who believe in God must decide whether they're going to keep trusting Him, even in dark days. For more information and to RSVP, click HERE.
