Oakwood Baptist Premieres Side Order Movie Dec. 4

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Oakwood Baptist Church will premiere the full length motion picture Side Order on Dec. 4 at the Chickamauga Campus.

Side Order is a Christmas movie that will entertain, inspire and move the emotions of the entire family, officials said. This movie is an Oakwood Media production, with all the talent – on both sides of the camera – coming from Oakwood Baptist Church.

Review for Side Order:
The story of Side Order centers around five characters in a small town during the week of Christmas. The town is struggling with the pending closure of the mill and each of our central characters has their own struggles. In the end, each character will have discovered in their own way, no matter where you go, no matter what you see in this world, nothing is more beautiful than that place where we belong. You will see love at its purest and the gospel presented, along with the true meaning of Christmas, all at a place where the best things in life aren’t on the menu.

Oakwood Baptist Church will present Side Order on Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 5-6 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Chickamauga Campus located at 115 Oakwood St. There is no ticket to buy and there is no admission charge. Seating is general admission.

"This project has been over a year in the making and is our gift to the community this Christmas," said Oakwood’s Media Director Bobby Daniels.

Senior Pastor Darrell Henry said, "If you enjoy the movie It’s A Wonderful Life then you’ll love Side Order."

He said the truth is that he had only moved to a new location".  I remember when we named 15th Street as Billy Graham Avenue, his daughter Gigi came for the dedication ... (click for more)
