Meet at 12:00 noon in the library (on the first floor, near the church office and the nursery/preschool rooms). Bring $5 if you’d like to partake of the pizza order we will place once all preferences have been voiced. If you’d prefer to bring your own food, you’re welcome to. Drinks will be provided.

Our Next Film: Sunday, September 27–-Departures
Departures is a Japanese film that follows a young man who returns to his hometown after a failed career as a cellist and stumbles across work as a nokanshi—a traditional Japanese ritual mortician. He is subjected to prejudice from those around him, including from his wife, because of strong social taboos against people who deal with death. Eventually he earns their respect and learns the importance of interpersonal connections through the beauty and dignity of his work.
