Movie and a Message for Teens

Movie and a Message for Teens

Compassion Action Foundation and Muslim Teens Connect kicked off a special program series for teenagers: Movie and a Message. The series gives teens an opportunity to watch films and have brief discussions on the messages. After watching the critically-acclaimed Hidden Figures film, which is based on the true story of three brilliant African-American women’s historical achievements at NASA, teens shared their views on the film and how it relates to the present. Our next movie night is April 20th at 4pm. We will watch The Pursuit of Happyness with Will Smith. Food and snacks will be provided! All teens welcome. RSVP is a must (862-373-1565).
