Richfield UMC's first of six free neighborhood movie nights was a hit with neighbors and friends!
The double feature of "Trolls" and "Cinderella" was set up in the Fellowship Hall, drive-in style. Twenty little brightly colored cars made of boxes were immediately claimed by excited children. Some brought pillows and blankets to complete the experience. Two little daycare buddies took turns watching the movies in each other's cars. Popcorn and lemonade rounded out the evening.
Congregation members were excited to usher and provide hospitality, Richfield's youth served the snacks, and its childcare families and neighborhood families had a great evening.
A great time was had by all, and they promised to spread the word!
Has your congregation ever considered hosting a movie night for the community? If you do, be sure to follow the law and get the proper license to cover the movie (yes, you really do need one)! The most common type of license is a CVLI license.
