Seen any good movies lately? I’ve seen a few. But my favorite movies are the ones where the story connects with something real in my experience or resonates with a deeper truth. Filmmakers are our modern day storytellers and when they do a good job, they point us to something greater than ourselves. Believe it or not, you can find some parallels with God’s truth even in some of the movies you see in the theater. Why is that? Because, if it’s really true, then it can only have one source: God.
This week, we’re kicking off God on Film where we use the themes of some of the summer’s biggest blockbuster movies to dive into God’s Word and discover what He says. We do this because we’ve found we can grow spiritually through the summer by searching for God through His Word. In fact, in Jeremiah 29:13, God says, “If you look for Me wholeheartedly, you will find Me.” And the more you seek after God, the more you will find Him.
So I want to invite you to join us for our most fun series of the year. Yes, we’ll have popcorn and sodas, first time guests will be getting a free movie ticket, and there’s more surprises in store. But most of all, I want you to be here because you can either glide through the summer or grow in your walk with God. I want to see you grow because that’s what God wants for you. This is also a great time to bring someone along with you. There’s nothing like helping someone else connect with Christ!
