Spiritual Growth through Film ~ Join us on Tuesdays this Fall in the Parlour to enjoy films on the big screen, at no cost and a short discussion to follow about the meaning behind the film. Our next film will be on Tuesday, November 19th with Saints and Soldiers. Based on actual WWII events, Saints and Soldiers tells the dramatic story of a small ban of Allied soldiers trapped behind enemy lines with information that could save thousands of American lives. Outgunned and ill-equipped, they must battle the frigid wilderness and roving German troops to smuggle critical intelligence back to Allied territory.
