Red Lion Zion

Free movie screening

Red Lion Zion United Methodist Church invites the public to a free outdoor movie showing of “Breakthrough” on Friday, Aug. 16.

The movie is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds. When Joyce Smith’s adopted son John falls through an icy Missouri lake, all hope seems lost. But as John lies lifeless, Joyce refuses to give up. Her steadfast belief inspires those around her to continue to pray for John’s recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction.

All are invited to join the church for this movie night. The movie is best suited for ages 13 and up. Arrive at 8 p.m. to get a spot and join an ice cream social with the church. The movie will start at dusk, approximately 8:45 p.m. There is no charge for this event. Bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.

Red Lion Zion Methodist Church is located at 1155 Felton Road, Red Lion. Visit for more information. For questions, contact Joan Alley at 717-244-2585 or
