Middle and high school youth and adults are welcome to join us in the Lounge/Nursery as we watch movies and discuss our faith from 9:15am-10:05am on Sundays. You do not need to have been present at the beginning of the movie or have seen the movies before to join us.
Film & Faith was birthed from a 3-fold idea:
- God tells the Story of God and God’s People through the scriptures
- Our culture tells it’s Story through film
- What if we compared and contrasted the Two Stories and see how they line up and/or how they are in conflict?
The bottom line when it comes to Film & Faith is that we really believe that God truly is in all things (Ephesians 4:6). Because of this, God does not abandon things but restores them (Colossians 1:20), even an altar in the middle of ancient Athens (Acts 17:23).
Because we always look at life through some kind of filter, we invite students and adults to practice what it means to see the world through the Kingdom of God filter. Whether its film or music or something else, once you strip away the Hollywood and you start to have conversations about it, you’re going to end up looking into what God is doing in the world and how we can direct our lives towards what God is doing.
And the people who come to Film and Faith have had conversations about love, death, funerals, living with grief, overcoming obstacles, and have talked about concrete examples in their lives where God was present. With more practice, they will look through that Kingdom filter and see God in stories, songs, and the world around them on a regular basis.
