It Was Movie Night At All Saints

There was free admission and free popcorn last Friday as All Saints Anglican Church had its first “Movie Night” with the showing of Facing The Giants, the Christian football film produced by an Albany, Ga. church.

“Movie Night” is scheduled at All Saints for the fourth Friday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The next featured film will be The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe: Chronicles of Narnia on April 25th. Later, the church will screen The Ultimate Gift and Amazing Grace.

“I hope to alternate between thoughtful Christian films and some that are just fun and wholesome.” Rev. Michael Fry said. “Visual media are having such a powerful impact on society today that I think the church should have a hand in guiding folks to what is best in a sea of mediocrity and at times refuse.”

An audience of about 25 parishioners cheered every touchdown by the Shiloh Christian Academy Eagles on their way to the state championship. One parishioner told Fry as he was leaving, “Father, movie night has been a huge success!.”Fry added that he had always wanted to have a movie night at his previous churches but never got around to it.
