Family Fun Movie Night – August 17th at 8:30 pm in Bethel Wesley Parking Lot

Round up your kids, grandkids, friends & neighbors for a fun-filled outdoor movie night.  It will be like going to a drive–in movie only free.  There will be popcorn and pop available.  Bring your own chairs, blankets or sleeping bags to relax on during the movie.  “Trailer Made” is the movie that will be shown.  It is about a father and a young son going on an adventure to Africa in the father’s attempt to reconnect with his son.  After they land in Africa, they lose their luggage and their passports.  Come and see what happens to them!  The fun begins at 8:30!
