Now I love a good sci-fi movie with explosions and robots as much as the next guy, but sometimes you want to watch a movie that has some heart and encourages the spirit. I am really excited to announce that in partnership with LIFE 100.3 we will be presenting the movie “Overcomer” which is a story about how we can face the curveballs that life throws at us when we have a little help. In the movie life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future.
After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who’s pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.
I know that this may sound like just another sports movie but I believe that the situation is secondary to the message that we all face obstacles in life and we can let them defeat us, or, with Gods help, we can overcome them. We hope that you will consider joining us on Friday February 21st at 7:00. We will watch the movie together on the big screen with the big sound and enjoy some snacks and drinks as well. There is a small cost that goes to LIFE 100.3 for licensing fees. The food is provided for free. Please come on out and bring the whole family.
In Christ, Rev. Alton
