Sunday Worship In-person and Streamed Online at 10am

Anti-Racist Film Club This Month

This Sunday, 1/28 @12:30, come watch the original Color Purple film at an in-person screening downstairs in the First UMC Olympia chapel. We'll be watching the film and eating plenty of popcorn together!

This is a PG-13 film. Parents should advise their own judgement.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker, The Color Purple (1985) is a historical epic that tells the story of Ceile, a poor African-American woman in the early 20th Century South. Over the course of 40 years, Ceile survives abuse and bigotry in search of independence and eventual self-fulfillment.

You can watch a full trailer for the film here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h-efLS7VV4&ab_channel=WarnerBros.Entertainment
