Faith and Film at Sanctuary UCC
Friday, May 17 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Sanctuary United Church of Christ presents its monthly Faith and Film program. Bring your own beer, wine or soda and experience the places where pop culture meets faith. Attendees watch a current film, followed by a discussion about themes of morality, faith, and humanity led by local theologians and community leaders.
This month’s film tells the courageous story of the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town who must overcome the fallout of being outed to his parents. His parents struggle with reconciling their love for their son with their beliefs and the boy is pressured into a conversion therapy program. Conflict, courage and confusion fill his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.
Screening and discussion led by Rev. Anastasia Kidd and Rev. Chad Kidd; Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; screening, 6:45 p.m.; discussion, 8:45 to 9:30 p.m.
Space is limited. For reservations visit the Faith and Film web page.
Note: While Sanctuary’s license provides inexpensive access to a wide range of current and big-studio films, the church is limited in its ability to market the film title outside of its own network. Please call 781-395-3360 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for information about the film title.
Cosponsored by the Medford Film Collaborative. Attending the film is free, but a free will offering will be collected; the suggested donation is $10 per person.
