FEBRUARY 2018

 

February is History Month

Night at the museumIt’s also the month the Presbyterian Church in Canada celebrates “Heritage Sunday” when we acknowledge our heritage as Christians and Presbyterians.  With that in mind, our movie feature this month is a fun play on history as we host another Sunday Night at the Movies on Sunday, February 18 at 6:30 p.m. and present “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian”.  It’s a wild ride as historic figures from the past come to life.  Suitable for all ages.
