July 21st: Free Movie Night

House on the Rock Church in Edinburg is hosting a free movie night on Friday, July 21st at 6:30 pm. This month’s showing is titled, “Do You Believe?”  This film is about a dozen different souls, all moving in different directions, all longing for something more.  As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ, even if they don’t yet believe it.  When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action.  His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate.  More than a movie, it is a question we all must answer in our lifetime: Do you believe?  Free popcorn and drinks will be provided.  House on the Rock is located at 314 North Grant Street in Edinburg.
