On September 15th, STCOC will be showing Like Arrows, a feature film by Family Life.

About the movie:

When conflict, rebellion, and resentment overwhelm their family, Charlie and Alice are forced to rethink their parenting strategy. In the process, they realize how critical intentionality and focus are when shaping and molding young lives. FamilyLife’s first feature film explores the challenges and joys that come with raising children. Through a journey that unfolds over 50 years, Charlie and Alice discover the unmistakable power of family.Together, they learn that knowing and living by God’s Word is what brings transformation and hope to any family.

LIKE ARROWS casts a powerful vision for parents, reminding us that nothing is more important for any family than to have God and His Word directing our lives. The films executive producers are Alex and Stephen Kendrick, and FamilyLife’s Dennis and Barbara Rainey and Bob Lepine.

The film will be shown free of charge on Friday, September 15th at 7:00 PM. The showing will take place at our church building, located at 351 E. Thurston Street, Elmira, NY 14901.

The film is part of a significant parenting initiative featuring FamilyLife’s Art of Parenting™, which includes an eight-session small group series. Southern Tier Church of Christ will be offering the parenting class as a part of our small group semester.* The classes started on September 24th.
