Wednesday, March 8th – Joshua
A mysterious stranger brings both spiritual comfort and a certain level of distrust to a small community in this drama based on the spiritual best-seller by Joseph Girzone. A mysterious man named Joshua (Tony Goldwyn) arrives in the small Midwestern town of Auburn sometime in the late 19th century. Joshua sets up a carpentry shop in Auburn, and soon develops a reputation for his kind and unselfish nature; after bad weather nearly destroys a church in the town’s African-American neighborhood, Joshua offers to help repair the building, and has soon persuaded much of the community to offer their support, including Father Pat (Kurt Fuller), a priest at Auburn’s Catholic church. Father Pat’s superior, Father Tardone (F. Murray Abraham) is also struck by Joshua’s talent, charm, and humble desire to help others, and asks him to carve a new statue of Saint Peter for their church. However, while much of the town is following the good example set by Joshua, when people begin to ascribe supernatural powers to the town’s new carpenter, Father Tardone begins to become suspicious, and wants to know who Joshua really is and what he really intends to do in Auburn. Joshua features an original song score by popular contemporary Christian musician Michael W. Smith.

Wednesday, March 15th – Joseph 
Joseph of Nazareth was chosen by God to be the earthly father of Jesus.  Known as Joseph the carpenter, the Bible does not reveal much detail about Joseph’s role as a father to Jesus Christ, but we know from the Gospel of Matthew, that he was an excellent earthly example of integrity and righteousness. Now in this Award Nominated film, watch this key Biblical figure come to life in telling of the birth of Jesus and the struggles of a young family being pursued by a mad King Herod, this production is based on the historical texts of the Gospels while adding some artistic interpretation to help us all come close to Jesus.

Wednesday, March 22nd -Mary Magdalene
Mary of Magdalene is thought of as the second-most important woman in the New Testament after Mary the Mother of Jesus.  This is the story of Mary Magdalene and how she came to travel with Jesus as one of his followers.  She was present at Jesus’ two most important moments:  the crucifixion and the resurrection.  Within the four Gospels, she is named at least 12 times, more that most of the apostles.  This film depicts why The Gospel references her as courageous and brave enough to stand by Jesus in his hours of suffering, death and beyond.

Wednesday, March 29th – Thomas
Thomas was one of Jesus Christ’s 12 apostles, specially chosen to spread the Gospel after the Lord’s crucifixion and resurrection.  Thomas is remembered as “doubting Thomas”, due to his reply after Jesus death, that he would not believe in the resurrected Jesus unless he could actually touch Jesus’ wounds with his own hands.  But Thomas actually deserves to be respected for his faith.  He expressed his doubts fully and had them answered completely.  Doubting was only his way of responding, not his way of life as demonstrated when he didn’t hesitate to follow Jesus saying to the other disciples: “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”  (John 11:7, 8, 16).

Wednesday, April 5th – Resurrection
Who’s telling the truth? And whom can he trust?
Claudius, a Roman guard, finds himself in the middle of a cover-up regarding the tumultuous events following Christ’s execution. As he investigates further, he discovers that the religious leaders, the Roman government officials, and even his closest friends are attempting to hide something important from him. His relentless pursuit of answers to his growing questions threatens his reputation-and even his life. Resurrection is the story of one man’s quest for truth and the discovery that leads to his renewal.
This dramatic production brings to life renowned author Max Lucado’s short story.
