Last week I was invited to a pre-release screening of the movie King’s Faith. www.kingsfaith.com or King’s Faith on Facebook. This movie is in the same genre as Courageous and Fireproof and is similar in nature to To Save a Life; however, it is not as overt in how it presents the gospel and the cinematography and acting are superior to To Save a Life. Two years ago, I was invited to read the script and spend a few hours with the film’s director Nick Dibella giving feedback and suggestions. Now seeing the story on screen I am very pleased with Nick’s efforts. I think this will be an attractive movie especially for teens, but there is a great adult story that is woven in as well. King’s Faith was written, filmed, and produced right here in Rochester, which adds a fun dynamic as well. Below is a synopsis of the movie; check out the Web site at http://kingsfaith.com. On March 24 at 2:00 pm there will be a free screening of King’s Faith at the Dryden Theater. If you are interested in attending, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at PastorMikeK on Facebook.
King’s Faith is a story about a troubled high school boy who is taken in by a Christian foster family. “Brendan has seen a lot in his 18 years, most of it not good. Growing up in the foster care system, Brendan spent most of his life on the fringes of society. His former gang provided the only loyalty, stability, and sense of belonging that he had ever known; but eventually that world left him utterly alone once more, incarcerated, lost, and confused. While imprisoned, Brendan found faith and with it a renewed hope and sense of purpose. But keeping his faith once he regains his freedom is more of a challenge than when he was locked down, as new opportunities, new friends, and a new future clash directly with old temptations, old friends, and a past that he can’t seem to escape.”
In other news, the fundraising efforts for this summer’s Pearce Teen’s World Tour are in full swing. The quiz team has held an Avon sale, pizza sale, a pancake breakfast, and will be doing their quote-a-thon this spring. They will be in Seattle June 25-30. The Romania and Poland teams have held numerous bake sales, completed odd jobs, and on March 25 will be holding their Variety Show (see a team member for tickets). The Romania trip is July 26-August 6 and the Poland trip is August 16-27. Finally, registration forms for the Algonquin trip (August 5-11) are available online (registration form). If you have not gotten your passports yet for Romania, Poland, or Canada, please do so immediately.
In addition to these fantastic trips, many of our teens will be participating in Flower City Work Camp over Spring Break in April. I am so proud to see the many ways our students are participating in the worldwide church. Please pray for safety as we travel, as we work, and as we minister in the coming months. May God be glorified in each of these places.
