The long running film series continues in December with a showing of “Strangers in Town” at 7pm at Keystone Church (5019 Keystone Place North). Show up at 6:30 for refreshments and socializing. We help spread the word on the monthly showing, and we also like to add something new each month to the announcement. If you missed any past showings, they also have a lending library of DVDs of past movies. See a meaningful movie on Friday and take home ever more meaningful movies for home viewing. The following blurb for “Strangers in Town” is from their website:

Doors open at 6:30 for refreshments and socializing. The event is free, but a $5 donation is appreciated to cover expenses. The location is 5019 Keystone Place North (Keystone Church).
The documentary “Strangers in Town”, tells the story of how global migration unexpectedly transformed and enriched Garden City, Kansas. It brought great challenges to the community, including demands for housing, social services, education, and infrastructure. But this immigration also provided exposure to remarkable diversity. This is a passionate, beautiful film that makes you believe in the American dream again. Garden City’s welcoming of new immigrants provides a welcome relief to the mean-spirited xenophobia of so much contemporary American politic.
