Saturday afternoon at the movies returns to Blanco, Texas. July 12th The Ark Church will host a free showing of “God Is Not Dead!” The movie will begin at 3:00 PM followed by live worship by the Ark Church Worship Team. Come enjoy this movie at the Ark Church building located on the North side of Lowes Parking lot behind the old H&R Block building. Look for the sign of the Cross on the side of the building. Free popcorn will be provided. Please call 830-833-4321 to reserve your free seat as soon as possible. Bring your family, friends, or invite a stranger and let us fill the Ark together.

If you have been challenged to stand for your faith in Jesus, this movie will encourage and equip your future victories. If your children or grandchildren are getting ready to go off to University, this movie will strengthen their resolve to keep the faith you have spent a lifetime nurturing. Below is a brief description of the movie:

How far would you go…to defend your belief in God? Present-day college freshman and devout Christian, Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper), finds his faith challenged on his first day of Philosophy class by the dogmatic and argumentative Professor Radisson (Kevin Sorbo). Radisson begins class by informing students that they will need to disavow, in writing, the existence of God on that first day, or face a failing grade. As other students in the class begin scribbling the words “God Is Dead” on pieces of paper as instructed, Josh finds himself at a crossroads, having to choose between his faith and his future. Josh offers a nervous refusal, provoking an irate reaction from his smug professor. Radisson assigns him a daunting task: if Josh will not admit that “God Is Dead,” he must prove God’s existence by presenting well-researched, intellectual arguments and evidence over the course of the semester, and engage Radisson in a head-to-head debate in front of the class. If Josh fails to convince his classmates of God’s existence, he will fail the course and hinder his lofty academic goals. With almost no one in his corner, Josh wonders if he can really fight for what he believes. Can he actually prove the existence of God? Wouldn’t it just be easier just to write “God Is Dead” and put the whole incident behind him? GOD’S NOT DEAD weaves together multiple stories of faith, doubt and disbelief, culminating in a dramatic call to action. The film will educate, entertain, and inspire moviegoers to explore what they really believe about God, igniting important conversations and life-changing decisions.

Also, the movie has an option of being spoken in Spanish. We will offer a free viewing of the movie to bless our Spanish speaking neighbors if there is an interest. Please call us if you’re interested in our hosting “God Is Not Dead” spoken in Spanish. Ark Revival Church is honored to sponsor these free presentations of “God Is Not Dead!” Please RSVP space is limited. We are ready to host more than one viewing of the movie as interest demands.
