Film School

so, what the heck is

.

.

.

Film School is our Sunday morning spiritual formation class.
We gather at 9:00 am in the basement of St. Thomas Church.
All 7th – 12th graders are

welcome to join us.
And yes, parents can come and see

what it’s all about too!
Film School gathers from mid-September thru mid-May.

.

.

so you just sit in the basement
and do this?

.

veg out movies

.

Well, not exactly.
We aren’t really all that interested in just watching movies…But we are interested in what story is being told. God is The Great Storyteller.
The Scriptures are filled with story after story (not myths, not legends, not fables) and these Stories tell of God’s People cooperating with God in order to make the world as God wants it to be.

.

.

Sometimes we get it right.
Sometimes we miss the mark.
As we watch films in Film School,
we talk about how the story being
told in the film lines up
(or doesn’t line up)
with The Story that God is telling in Scripture and in our world today.

.

OK, but why don’t you do a bible study like other sunday schools?

.

bible light shine down

.

We do.
We read the Bible in Film School.
Every. Single. Time.
Film School wouldn’t and couldn’t exist without the Bible. Films are the way that our culture today tells its Story and we must always take the opportunity to measure that against God’s Story.

.

What films have you done?

.

movie collage

.

There are too many to list here.
we’ve done animated films, dramas, comedies, super-hero, fantasy, etc. Again, we’re more interested in what Story is being told and not so much the special effects

(but those are awesome too!)
