First Baptist Church Gordonsville to host picnic and movie night

Join First Baptist Church Gordonsville from 6:00 p.m .until 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2019, for a free Picnic and Movie Night!

The evening of fun and fellowship will be held inside the church gym, located at 70 East Main Street in Gordonsville.

Bring your friends and family and enjoy food, drinks, homemade ice cream, and an inspirational movie! 

The movie will be Run the Race, which tells the story of two desperate brothers who sacrifice today for a better tomorrow.

Reeling from his mother’s death and his father’s abandonment, Zach, an All-State athlete, finds glory on the football field, working to earn a college scholarship and the brothers’ ticket out of town.

When a devastating injury puts Zach—and his dreams—on the sidelines, David laces up his track cleats to salvage their future and point Zach toward hope.

Run the Race shows what’s possible when you run to—instead of from—the overwhelming love of God.

The movie was produced by Tim Tebow.

Be sure to bring lawn or camping chairs and blankets for the kids!
