Dinner & A Movie

Carpenter’s Shop Church has purchased rights to the public showing of the Sherwood Pictures production of “Fireproof”. On Monday, February 9th at 7:00 P.M. the ministry will offer a “dinner and a movie” setting at their YZONE youth center located at 417 Peacock St. in Ahoskie.

“We want to offer couples a wonderful evening with a fabulous meal and a movie targeted at strengthening the marriage,” states Pastor Wallace Phillips. “It’s just in time for the Valentine’s Day celebration and couples don’t have to leave town to enjoy a great evening,” Phillips added.

Fireproof is a movie targeted at strengthening the marital relationship. At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter's adage: Never leave your partner behind. At home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.

Growing up, Catherine Holt always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter...just like her daddy. Now, after seven years of marriage, Catherine wonders when she stopped being "good enough" for her husband.

Regular arguments over jobs, finances, housework, and outside interests have readied them both to move on to something with more sparks.

As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb's father challenges his son to commit to a 40-day experiment: "The Love Dare." Wondering if it's even worth the effort, Caleb agrees-for his father's sake more than for his marriage. When Caleb discovers the book's daily challenges are tied into his parents' newfound faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.

While trying to stay true to his promise, Caleb becomes frustrated time and again. He finally asks his father, "How am I supposed to show love to somebody who constantly rejects me?"

When his father explains that this is the love Christ shows to us, Caleb makes a life-changing commitment to love God. And with God's help he begins to understand what it means to truly love his wife.

But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever...rescuing his wife's heart.

Pastor Wallace Phillips encourages all couples to consider this venue as an option for something special and unique this Valentine’s Day. Seating is limited and tickets are available at the church office or by calling (252) 332-6113.
