Join us for the feature film, Priceless, starring Joel Smallbone from the group For King and Country.
Inspired by a true story, Smallbone plays the part of a man who inadvertently delivers two women into the hands of sex traffickers. When he figures out their plight, he vows to save them.
Movie begins at 12:00 noon and would be a great activity for local youth groups to attend. This movie is rated PG-13.
