Excitement in NC

With FIREPROOF opening in theaters three weeks from today(!), we heard a great story from Rod Kerr, the Minister of Education at First Baptist Church-Salisbury—a town north of Charlotte. He writes:

“We bought 200 tickets for opening weekend: 100 for Saturday, September 27 at 4 p.m. and 100 for Sunday September 28 at 4 p.m. We will have a reception Sunday at 6 p.m. to invite people to our 6-week follow up classes. We are hoping to team up with local fire departments for the reception and ticket distribution.

“We are also co-sponsoring a booth with the Salisbury Fire Department at our Downtown Family Festival on Friday, September 5 to promote the movie. I am going around now speaking at various community clubs promoting the movie. Our community goal is to have 1000 couples see the movie, 500 couples involved in Fireproof Your Marriage classes after seeing the movie, and 10 churches begin intentional marriage ministries.

“We already have 12 churches participating.”

Way to go FBC-Salisbury!

I am excited for this movie! It looks amazing!

Facing the Giants is one of my favorite movies.. I could watch it over and over again. Its clear message of truth and how to apply in daily situations is SO COOL.

Some people call it preachy, but I think its a great example for me to follow. In good and bad times. Since most movies just show the good in things...

Thank you so much, good movies are very hard to come by. May God bless you richly as you Glorify His Name!
