The Woodbridge SDA Church in Woodbridge, VA invites you to the Family Fun movie night. The featured film is Overcomer. Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey. Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box-office hit, WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson.

Held at the close of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Building Bridges Breaking Bread is a fun night out that celebrates the power of community and raises funds to support the incredible clients Rock Recovery serves. Gather around the table with us and enjoy a special opening reception, a three-course plated dinner, unlimited beer and wine, and a live and silent auction. Rock Recovery is a local nonprofit that helps people overcome eating disorders and body image issues. Eating disorder treatment is costly and often inaccessible for families, and only 1 in 10 people get the help they need. Proceeds from the event will go toward program scholarships to help more clients access the care they need to heal from disordered eating, so they can break bread with those they love. We hope you will join us for this wonderful event. For more information on registration and event details, visit www.rockrecoveryed.org/buildingbridges.
