Reel Life

Watching, Listening, and Learning from Stories in Scripture and Now

 In addition to our Sunday explorations of faith and Scripture, our annual Lenten journey includes mid-week opportunities of joining together to watch six movies.  The themes of these movies will resonate with the themes explored each Sunday.  A synopsis of the movies is in the Lenten brochure.

 For those attending a movie, we invite you to gather in the chapel between 6:45 and 7:15 to greet one another, have a snack, and get ready.  The movie which will begin at 7:15 sharp except on March 25th.  Following each movie (1 ½ to 2 hours), there is an optional facilitated conversation.
