Faith on Film

Story-telling is central to all faiths and one of our greatest mediums for story-telling today is the movies.  Faith on Film is a long-running program which brings insightful films into our church parlor (and great snacks!).  Afterwards, we share a time of discussion over pizza and salad, moderated by our own film aficionado Vern Verhoef.  

All films take place in the Erdman Room at 4pm
