We are renting out a theater at Rivertown Celebration Cinema for a showing of the movie, "I Can Only Imagine" on Saturday, March 17, at 4:55pm.
The film brings to life the true story behind the song of ultimate hope, “I Can Only Imagine.” A transformed relationship with his troubled father inspired Bart Millard, the lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe, to write what is now the most-played radio single in Christian music history. The story beautifully illustrates that nobody is ever too far from God’s love -- or too far from an eternal home in Heaven.
Tickets are sold out! If you have reserved and paid for your ticket, it will be available at a table just outside the theater from 4:00-4:45pm on Saturday, March 17.

Overview of "The Case for Christ" Rated PG
Lee is an ardent investigative journalist who loves sinking his teeth into a good story. He considers himself to be an atheist and has no time for religion, but his wife is deeply religious, and she challenges him to pursue the truth about Jesus Christ's life from an objective point of view. At first, the idea seems absurd, but he decides to run with it. The more deeply he delves into the life of Christ, the more surprised he is by what he discovers. Perhaps this journalistic assignment will be the start of a new way of seeing the world.
