FaithTree at the Movies explores deep questions about faith through the discussion of notable films. Each of our events features a special guest theologian or theologians who chooses a film and helps us to explore that film's content in a Gospel oriented light. We begin each night with an opening interview of our presenter, followed by a screening of that evening's film, and an open Q&A time to discuss the topics raised by the film and presenter.
The films are open to the community and admission is free.
We've revealed the movie: it is Fred Claus! Please join us tonight by noting the instructions below:
How to Participate in the Online Movie Night on November 12
Due to streaming restrictions we cannot directly stream the movie, so we are doing just like we did last year: you can rent the movie from iTunes/Amazon/etc. for $2.99 or stream the movie (it is available on HBO Max). Of course, you could play it on disc if you have it, as well. If renting the movie is a financial hardship, please contact Pastor Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you let us know you are coming, Pastor Tim will invite you to the FB Chat so we can synchronize starting it. (We'll aim for 6:35 pm Central sharp.)
We will join in a video discussion afterwards here . (We are using Facebook Messenger Rooms, but you do not need to have a Facebook account to participate -- it is open to anyone.)
We launched with a thought-provoking discussion about the film the Martian on November 18. We will continue this spring with four more great films, each at 7:00 p.m. on a Friday night. Please join us for these special evenings of faith and film!
November 18: the Martian
