Third Bethany Movie Night Coming Up July 10

The film Fireproof will be screened at Bethany Movie Night 3, a free event scheduled for Friday, July 10, at 7:00 p.m. A separate movie will be shown for children, and a fully-staffed nursery will be provided. Movie Night is open to the community as well as to Bethany members, who are urged to invite their friends and neighbors. Free refreshments will be served after the screening of the film, and a drawing for a door prize will be held.

Fireproof is a family-friendly film about a firefighter whose marriage is disintegrating because of the way he treats his wife. When the couple prepares for divorce, the firefighter’s father challenges him to make a commitment that will save his marriage. While trying to live up to his commitment, he comes to understand God’s love and what it means to truly love his wife; but it may be too late to recapture the couple’s relationship.

Movie Night 3 will be the third in a series of free movie events over the past several months. Those who attended the first two greatly enjoyed the movies and fellowship, and the third will be a lot of fun, too, so plan to attend. You’ll be glad you did!
