We are renting a theater at Celebration Rivertown for a showing of the movie, “Breakthrough.”
“Breakthrough” is based on the inspirational true story of one mother's unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith's son, John, falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John's recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction.
The movie will begin at 4:00pm. Cost is $5.00 per person. Sign ups will begin on March 10.

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.
