    Ever lonely?      Ever felt left out? 

                                    (or had FOMO?*)


--- >>Ever had a film touch you deeply?<< --- 


For six weeks, we'll look at a few, very insightful movies and discuss them on Zoom. 


We'll see how God is represented there and how God often speaks to us through them.


[To Register, go to: www.bit.ly/PUMC-Online-classes]

Watch the "film of the week"in your own homes during the week and write down some comments/questions.

Then we'll gather on Thursdays online to discuss how:
• The film allowed God to touch our lives?
• Jesus became more real?
• Were we moved by the Holy Spirit?
• and especially, "So What?"
..... what we are going to do about it?

The films chosen will be appropriate for thinking people of all ages and guaranteed to prompt deep reflective thoughts and honest discussions.

[To Register, go to: www.bit.ly/PUMC-Online-classes]

You will be sent an invitation to join a ZOOM meeting and a listing of the films selected.
