What's Happening...


Free! Family Movie Night “The Queen Of Katwe”

This Friday, August 24, 6:00 – 8:30 pm, library

Popcorn and Lemonade will be provided, please bring any other movie snacks you want.  Everyone is welcome!
The movie is set in the poor village of Katwe, Uganda and follows our 10-year-old heroine Phiona, whose life is changed when a missionary (actor David Oyelowo) comes to town and teaches children how to play chess.  Phiona becomes fascinated by the game and her surprising talent opens the door to the chance to escape from poverty.  Come join us for this heartwarming and fun family movie!

Youth Group Games and S’mores

Also this Friday, August 24, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
As summer comes to an end, all youth are invited to gather for an evening of games, followed by s’mores and roasted marshmallows around the fire pit!  This a great chance to get to have some fun while getting to know one another.  And, if you play guitar, please feel free to bring it along for songs around the fire!
**Those attending the Friday Family Movie Night featuring the Queen of Katwe are welcome to join us around the fire after the film!
