Free outdoor movie night at Elim Baptist
On Friday, Aug. 26, Elim Baptist Church in Isanti will be showing the movie “Soul Surfer” at dusk (around 8 p.m.). There is no charge; popcorn and snacks will be provided. (Bring your own pop and blanket/chair.) We will move inside in case of rain.
“Soul Surfer” is a 2011 drama film about the life of surfer Bethany Hamilton. At the age of 13, Hamilton lost her arm to a shark attack. The film details the events surrounding this attack and her struggle during the aftermath. The film was based on Hamilton’s autobiography of the same name and on the filmmakers’ interviews with the family. The title refers to a term coined in the 1960s to denote someone who surfs purely for pleasure, but the word soul has a double meaning as a reference to Hamilton’s Christian faith, which helped her recover her surfing career after the attack.
Elim is located at 114 Dahlin Ave. NE, Isanti. Call 763-444-9221 with questions, or visit www.elimisanti.org.
