All are invited to join First Baptist for a free movie night Saturday,  March 30 at 6 p.m.  We will see the film “The Pursuit of Happyness” with Will Smith.

Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and his young son (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go. Even though Chris eventually lands a job as an intern at a prestigious brokerage firm, the position pays no money. The pair must live in shelters and endure many hardships, but Chris refuses to give in to despair as he struggles to create a better life for himself and his son.

Shaunta Patton, executive director of Love INC of Jackson County, joins us in choosing this month’s film and will participate in discussion following the movie. What message does this film have for us today? All are welcome to watch and join in a discussion afterward.
