2nd Sunday Cinema

I know, I know. For movie people, this coming Sunday night is already a Big Deal. But don't let a little scheduling conflict get in the way! Set your DVR to capture the Academy Awards, and then come to Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church where we'll share in fellowship and faith conversations around a terrific film from 2015.

Copyright restrictions prevent us from naming the movie, but here's a description:

This inspirational sports drama tells the story of a high school football coach who begins a new job in McFarland, California, an agricultural community where many of the immigrant students double as field laborers before school and on weekends. While football doesn't go especially well, Coach White recognizes innate qualities of strength, perseverance, and speed among his athletes. Thinking outside the box, Coach White introduces a new way to build on their abilities and help them succeed as cross country runners. Along the way, cultural and racial misgivings arise but dissipate as relationships develop. 

Join us from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on February 12 (and EVERY 2nd Sunday). Please park in the lower lot and use the back door.

All are welcome! This is a shared ministry venture of all Tuscarawas County Moravian Churches.

New Year; New Movies!

Welcome to a New Year! May it be filled with blessings. And may we all RECOGNIZE those blessings!

The Moravian Churches of Tuscarawas County will continue to offer shared ministry opportunities throughout 2017. For starters, there's 2nd Sunday Cinema. Cleverly, we meet on the second Sunday of each month at Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Together we watch feature films and discuss them from a faith perspective. (Recent conversations have focused on Second Hand Lions, St. Vincent, and Miracles from Heaven.) This is a faith development option designed for adults and older teens.

Join us this Sunday, January 8, for our first showing of 2017. Please park in the lower lot and use the church's back door.There is no cost to participate, and snacks are available (free will donations are accepted). 

To be in-the-know about upcoming movie titles and the like, contact Chris Johnson through Facebook and ask to be added to the 2nd Sunday Cinema Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/c.sobaniajohnson (Copyright rules/ license requirements prevent us from publicly publicizing movie titles and details.)

On the Second Sunday, Come to the Cinema

Copyright restrictions prevent us from publicizing the name of the movie we'll be showing and discussing at 
2nd Sunday Cinema on 
December 11 from 6 - 9 p.m.,
but feel free to guess the title of a recent release starring Jennifer Gardner as the mother of a critically ill child. A heart-warming, faith-first kind of movie, this little miracle of a film is appropriate for all audiences. 

Shown on the Big Screen at Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church, the movie will provide the catalyst for a faith-based discussion to follow. Refreshments (probably Christmas cookies!) will be available. Folding chairs are provided, but feel free to bring a lawn chair of your own if you'll be more comfortable.

2nd Sunday Cinema is part of the Shared Ministry Opportunities offered among the 6 Moravian congregations in Tuscarawas County. All are welcomed! Check back for more events in 2017.
