We invite you and your family to a free advanced screening of the movie, Paul, Apostle of Christ. This is the story of two men who struggle against a determined emperor and the frailties of the human spirit in order to bequeath the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Limited spaces are available so register today at LakewoodChurch.com/MovieNight.
Luke, as a friend and physician, risks his life every time he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul, who is held captive in Nero's darkest, bleakest prison cell. Before Paul's death sentence can be enacted, Luke resolves to write another book, one that details the beginnings of "The Way" and the birth of what will come to be known as the church. But Nero is determined to rid Rome of Christians.
Paul has survived floggings, shipwreck, starvation, stoning, hunger and thirst, cold and exposure. Yet as he his execution draws near, Paul's greatest struggle is not against the chains that bind him but against the shadows of his past misdeeds that continue to haunt him. Alone in the dark, he wonders if he has been forgotten . . . and if he has the strength to finish well. Register now at LakewoodChurch.com/MovieNight
