Faith & FILM SERIES

Movies today provide us with amazing opportunities to reflect on who we are and what matters to us most to our culture.  In our new Faith and Film Series, we invite our community together to reflect on films through the lens of spirituality.

     

Each month, we will watch a film and then  discuss how it intersects our faith.  We will  begin each movie promptly at 6:30pm in Room 206 with discussion to follow.  

   

Everyone is invited to come and participate!  Central will provide popcorn and water; feel free to bring something for yourself or something to share.  Students are invited to participate, but we ask parents to determine the appropriateness of each film for their child.


ALL FILMS & SHOWING DATES

ARE LISTED BELOW


If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Mike.

    “That rare movie that has the emotional and psychological depth to match its stunning surface.” – Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News

     

    “Miyazaki's luminescent, gorgeously realized world is relatively safe for children, but it also acknowledges blood, pain, dread, and death in ways that other animated films wouldn't dare.” – Tasha Robinson, AV Club

     

    Summary: During her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and spirits, and where humans are changed into beasts.

     

    The world of Spirited Away shows us that not everything is as it appears on the surface; not the world around us, and certainly not the people around us.  In much the same way Scripture reveals truths about a spiritual reality that is rarely what we expect.

     

    125 minutes. Rated PG for some scary moments.
