"Letters to Highland Baptist Church will be having a movie night on Friday, Mar. 18, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. p.m., featuring "Letters to God." "Letters to God" is a faith- based film about how a young boy fighting cancer finds strength and hope through writing letters to God and in doing so changes the lives of those around him. The story is a heartfelt tale of inspiration, hope and redemption, when one boy's walk of faith crosses paths with one man's search for meaning- the resulting trans- formational journey touches the lives of everyone around them. Inspired by a true story, from one of the producers of "Fireproof" and "Facing the Giants", "Letters to God" is an intimate, moving and often funny story about the galvanizing effect one child's belief can have on his fami- ly, friends and community. Everyone is invited to join this special movie event at Highland Baptist Church.
