First Presbyterian Church Hosting Free Movie and Music Nights | New

0

If you ask Nathaniel Licht, director of music and marketing at First Presbyterian Church, there should be something free and fun to do every night for area families.

To provide locals with a free activity and help heal a fractured country, First Presbyterian is hosting a free movie in its parking lot tonight and a free worship concert Friday night.

“The church is meant to be a community center,” Licht said. “We want the community to gather here and have something to do on another night of the week.”

With so many happenings this summer, the First Presbyterian Church wanted to join in the fun.

Licht said he thought the Titusville Arts Council was doing a great job with its Friday outdoor movie series, so the church wanted to offer a free movie on Thursdays.

Over the summer, the church holds its fourth series of Thursday Movies, where its parking lot turns into an outdoor cinema.

“The ideal community has something for families to do every night of the week. We want to be part of Titusville’s summer event calendar,” Licht said.

The film, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, one of Licht’s favorite animated films, will begin around dusk. Those who want a bite to eat before the movie can enjoy free burgers, hot dogs and summer salads. Free lunch starts at 7:30 p.m.

The following night there is a free concert at the church which starts at 7 p.m. The concert is an evening of healing music where those who attend can, as Licht put it, “pray for the world, the nation and our community.”

With so much negativity circulating the world and social media, Licht said people need a night of positivity in their lives.

“This concert is a break from the constant stress that seems to be happening everywhere,” he said. “Music has the ability to take you to a different place in your mind. We hope to take you to a place of thoughtful peace, no matter what that peace means to you.

The concert, all acoustic music, features local musicians Anna Lehnortt, Melanie Lalone, Joe Thompson and Licht. “You can expect some really nice vocals,” Licht said.

Both events are open to the public, not just First Presbyterian members, and not just churchgoers.

“All are welcome, and we literally mean all,” he said.
