Our faith in Jesus Christ is grounded in Scripture. Telling our own faith story is a powerful witness to others, influencing how we think about, understand, and follow God. The same can be said of the arts, including literature and films. When characters long for something or yearn for something, when they celebrate, all these moments can be viewed through a lens of prayer, even those the characters may not address God directly. (Josh Larsen)

Characters, setting, plot, conflict, and a resolution are the basis of good stories. Over the next six weeks, we’ll hear stories of how God has transformed lives of our own members and characters in four different films with the overall themes of identity, discovery, and managing expectations (our own and those of others).

RSVPs are helpful but not mandatory. Sign up at church or contact the church office (231-798-2181 or Office@LakeHarborUMC.org). Please read the Brainstorming Info Faith in Film January 2024 and preview the movie trailers, below, if at all possible before we gather.
