Oakwood Baptist Welcomes Feature Film "Home Run"

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Oakwood Baptist Church welcomes the feature film, Home Run, opening nationwide on April 19, and at the Rave/Carmike 18 Theater in East Ridge.

Home Run - the latest offering from Provident Films - tells the story of baseball all-star Cory Brand (Scott Elrod) whose career and life is out of control.  Cory’s agent, played by Vivica A Fox - hoping to save his career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension - sends him back to the small town where he grew up.   Cory is forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Celebrate Recovery. Based on thousands of true stories, Home Run is a powerful reminder that with God, it’s never too late…because freedom is possible. For more information about the movie visit, www.homerunthemovie.com.

Home Run features an active ministry at Oakwood Baptist Church, Celebrate Recovery. Celebrate Recovery is a faith based, Christ centered recovery program from life’s hurts, habits and hangups.

"Home Run is more than a movie, it's a testimony to the changed lives we see through the ministry of Celebrate Recovery," said Oakwood’s Celebrate Recovery Leader, Marvin Morrison.

Celebrate Recovery meets every Friday night at 7 p.m. on the Chickamauga Campus of Oakwood Baptist Church, 115 Oakwood Street, Chickamauga, Ga. 30707. For more information about Celebrate Recovery at Oakwood visit www.oakwoodbc.org.

Oakwood Baptist Church is one church that worships in two locations: Chickamauga and Ringgold, inside Gateway Mall.  Oakwood is committed to loving God, loving people and making a difference.
