LARNED — The Larned Church of the Nazarene, 1024 Broadway, announces the return of its Tuesday Christian movie nights, starting at 7 p.m. Sept. 18, with the free showing of “Brother White.”
Popcorn, candy, water and soda are available to purchase, with funds going to youth programs, and popcorn refills are free. The church is located on the corner of Broadway and East 11th St. in Larned.
“We have exciting new movies to show,” said Troy Rodgers, who serves as audio/visual director for the church, as well as director of its Teen Department. He began the movie ministry last winter in an effort to provide an alternative, more positive viewing experience. “The movies have strong, affirmative messages of faith, hope, love and forgiveness, and they talk of redemption, salvation and prophesies surrounding Christ’s return,” he said.
“Brother White” is a new comedy produced by PureFlix Entertainment, a Christian film production company cofounded by David A.R. White, who has the title role in the film.
Besides David and Andrea White, “Brother White” also features Ray Wise, Reginald Veljohnson, JACKEE and Bruce Davison, with a special appearance by well-known gospel singer BeBe Winans. It is the story of Southern California mega-church associate pastor, James White, who wants his own church. He jumps at the chance to become pastor of an impoverished church in Atlanta, even though his wife and children don’t share his enthusiasm. The new congregation isn’t happy with the situation, either. But, they all must learn to trust each other and pull together to save the church from a corrupt banker. Winans supplies the musical miracle that saves them all in the end.
