Do you love watching movies?  Are you an armchair critic?  How would you rate the last movie you saw on a scale of 1 – 10?  Like to hash over the details?  Pick apart the plot?  Figure out what the hero coulda, shoulda done?  Thought about what you would have done?  Wondered if or how it related to your faith?

Then Trinity’s Movie Club is for you!

We meet on the 2nd Friday of each month, from September till June, at 7:30 p.m. in the Nursery.  Watch the ‘featured’ movie at home or gather with your friends.  A copy to borrow and a handy ‘viewing guide’ will be available through the office.  Then come on out and join the fun.

The 2018 Fall line-up will have the usual variety that is sure to stimulate interest and provoke differing opinions.  From The Blind Side to Lady in the Van, each of these movies is related to the theme of the resilience of the human spirit.  So bring your ideas or just bring yourself along to listen.  Come each month or as you’re able or for a particular movie.  There’s always a lively discussion.

The movies we have watched in the last few years are available to borrow from Trinity’s library for your own viewing pleasure.  Be sure to mark Movie Club on your calendar!


September 14 The Blind Side 2009 2h 9m
October 12 Before I Go to Sleep 2014 1h 32m
