Reel Life

Movies tell great stories. And we love good stories -- stories that can thrill us, inspire us and keep us coming back again and again. Sometimes Hollywood's stories depict truth as it really is; at other times Hollywood misses the mark. Reel Life looks at God's truth about some of the important issues of our day, and compares real life to "reel" life.

Movies tell great stories. And we love good stories — stories that can thrill us, inspire us and keep us coming back again and again. Stories become powerful when we find ourselves connecting with the key characters: the conflict, the struggle, the search for significance, the search for answers. It's because the character's story is often our story.

Hollywood is great at telling stories. Sometimes they depict truth as it really is; at other times Hollywood blockbusters couldn’t be further from the truth.

Join us this summer as we launch our own blockbuster quest and look for God’s truth around some of the more important issues of our day. We will see film clips and dive into God’s Word to distinguish real life from “reel” life!
