A Dinner and a Movie will be Saturday, May 26 at Lyons United Methodist Church.
Bring a dish to pass and your own table service; beverages will be provided. Dinner will be at 5:30 p.m. and the movie, “Courageous”, will follow.
As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer, yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, they quickly discover that their children are beginning to drift further away from them. When tragedy hits home, these men are left with a newfound urgency to renew their faith and reach out to their children. Will they be able to find a way to serve and protect those who are most dear to them?
