Movie with a Message: Eating You Alive

5:45 PM

Time5:45 PM - 9:00 PM

LocationHollywood 15 Cinemas Gainesville, Ga

DescriptionThe Bible says that our bodies are not our own, and that we are only stewards of what God has entrusted to us. Our bodies for those who know Jesus, are also the temple of the Holy Spirit. So, if we know that to be true, shouldn't we be better managers of that temple?
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a film with a Christian perpective. However, I believe the knowledge that they share will help us and wake us up to the truth and about the consequences from the things we eat, and how we can overcome many illnesses just by changing our diet. (SEE TRAILER)

TRAILER: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5241760/
Come join us as we watch and learn together.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Chronic health conditions afflict half of all adults in the U.S.
Cancer. Heart disease. Stroke. Diabetes. Obesity. Hypertension. Alzheimer’s. Arthritis. Erectile dysfunction. The list goes on. Despite countless dollars spent on medical research, new drugs, and innovative technology to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.

Featuring leading medical experts, researchers, nutritionists and everyday people, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information, and how we can use simple, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.

OPEN EVENT: Children and Married Friends welcome.

THEATER: Hollywood 15 Cinemas
120 Green Hill Circle NW, Gainesville, GA
SHOWTIME: 7:00pm
GENRE: Documentary
RATING: NR

Movie with a Message: Fragments of Truth

5:45pm

Time5:45pm - 8:45pm

Location120 Green Hill Circle NW, Gainesville, GA 30504

DescriptionONE NIGHT ONLY EVENT
Our Movies will be specific to intentionally expressing either a Biblical principle, story or message, that may help to build our faith or challenge us in our walk as believers.

DESCRIPTION: Our faith is based on the New Testament—but can we really trust the Bible? Skeptics say no, arguing that the Gospel manuscripts have been doctored to push a theological agenda.
In this new Faithlife original film, Dr. Craig Evans takes this claim head-on, traveling the globe to track down the most ancient New Testament manuscripts. Along the way, he highlights groundbreaking new evidence, demonstrating that the case for the reliability of the New Testament manuscripts is stronger than ever.
