Heritage Pointe Baptist Church Presents Free Movie Showing Of "Homerun"

Friday, October 11, 2013

Heritage Pointe Baptist Church will offer a free movie showing of "Homerun" on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome and popcorn and drinks will be available at no charge.

Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control. Hoping to save her client's career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory's agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can't wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.

As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

Heritage Pointe Baptist Church is at 60 Dyer Bridge Place, Ringgold, Ga. 30736, 706 858-0976.

Organizers said, "We have done several showings of different movies and have had a great response.  This movie hits home to where many families and individuals are.  It is such a neat atmosphere to be able to show films like this that have a fun topic, but yet, so many applications to our lives.  We look forward to seeing you there."
