The season of Epiphany begins January 8, 2017. For four weeks, we’ll explore how God reveals himself in film and in our own lives. Pastor Mary’s message will be based on a different film each week. You are encouraged to watch the films before Sunday worship. We are not arranging a group outing, but encourage you to see the movies with friends and families over the holidays or take advantage of Cinema Carousel’s special $5 ticket promotion on Tuesdays. Click on the links below to see the trailers. We’ll show them in church too.
