Pleasant Hill Movie Night at Buchanan Theatre

Pleasant Hill Baptist will host a Movie Night at Buchanan Theatre on Sunday, May 21 at 6 p.m.

The movie, “The Case for Christ,” is the story of journalist Lee Strobel, who was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.

Tickets are $3 each and can be purchased at the door. Transportation is available from the church and from The Glebe. Contact the church line to sign up for transportation at 992-5556.
