First United Church of Fulton to host movie

FULTON, NY – On November 17, starting at 2 p.m., First United Church of Fulton will show another enjoyable movie well suited to older adults.

There is no charge.

Popcorn and soda are provided, as well.

November’s movie was to be shown in October, but has been rescheduled for November.

This movie, rated PG 13, is a recent release that tells the story of one African American’s heroic struggle in
crossing from Negro League play to start in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

His personal story reflects the racism of the American culture, in the north and in the south, of the time.

He is spiked by base runners and beaned by pitchers.

His journey into the world of major league baseball turns out to be very costly and complex for him in many ways.

Copyright restrictions do not allow First United to publicize the title of the movie or the names of the leading characters.

First United Church is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA and the Presbyterian Church (USA).

The congregation is active in the greater Fulton community through the Greater Fulton Area Council of Christian
Churches and other avenues of sharing.

The facility offers hearing assistance, and it is accessible to those who are physically handicapped.

Sunday worship takes place each week at 11a.m.
