Nazarene church to show movie
The public is invited to attend “The Grace Card” movie at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at First Church of the Nazarene.
The movie is about how everything can change in an instant and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God and just about everyone else.
Mac’s rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he’s partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.
Mac’s home life is as frightening as anything he encounters on the streets of Memphis. Money is tight and emotions run high as he constantly argues with his wife and his surviving son Blake, who is hanging with the wrong crowd and in danger of flunking out of school.
Sam never expected to be a police officer. He has a calling to be a minister like his Grandpa George. But leading a small, start-up church doesn’t always put enough food on the table for a young family, so Sam doubles as a police officer. With his new promotion to sergeant, he starts questioning if his real calling might actually be police work rather than the pastorate.
Mac and Sam must look past their differences and somehow join forces to help one.
The movie is rated PG-13 due to thematic elements and some violence.
The movie runs 101 minutes. A break and a free-will collection are planned midway through the showing.
