ARTChurch | Sunday Circle
Dec 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

This Month’s Artist is still creating!  Check back later for details about the artist and art being installed for this month’s ARTChurch!

About ARTChurch: Inspired by the rich spirituality and deep themes inherent in art, ARTChurch looks at scripture and liturgy through the lens of the art installed in the Gallery at Sanctuary UCC. On the second Sunday of each month, we experience the Holy—and the holy in each other—through the images, colors, themes and creative energies of the installation, the artist’s perspective and that which is seen by the observer.

Secrets Lie Between the Lines (Call for the film title – per licensing agreement)

Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings” But have you ever had the opportunity to discuss this influential film theologically? Come to Faith and Film Night in December where we will finish our Mortality at the Movies Series by watching and discussing this beloved holiday tradition: Timeless Wonderful!

Description: A young George Bailey, overwhelmed by family obligations and a sense of responsibility toward his community, feels tied down to a company he never had an interest in working for, and a life he never wanted to live. As he ages, he sees his youth, dreams and opportunities pass him by.

“No matter how often you see this perennial Christmas favorite, you will be entranced. Flawless.”
“A kind man, overwhelmed by life’s trials, is visited by a heavenly messenger and gains a new lease on life.”

Chad & Anna Kidd will lead the discussion. BYOB. Bring your own beer, wine or soda and experience the places where Pop culture meets our faith. We will watch a current film followed by a discussion about themes of morality, faith, and humanity led by local theologians and community leaders.

This Film Screening and Discussion are free – suggested $10.00 donation is welcomed.

For information about the film title, please email or call 781-395-3360.
