Local churches plan a rally on the Court Square at 6 p.m. this Sun., Sept. 25.

The rally is part of events promoting the local showing of the movie Courageous when it opens in theaters across the nation next weekend.

The movie, which is the fourth produced by Sherwood Church, follows the likes of Facing the Giants and Fireproof. It tells the story of four fathers in law enforcement who, after going through a terrible tragedy, begin looking at their roles as fathers, and ultimately begin challenging one another to fulfill God’s intention for fathers.

The movie challenges families and specifically fathers to live courageously for Christ, said Dr. Fred Karthaus of Andalusia’s First Baptist Church.

“There will be several local leaders who will share testimonies concerning the importance of Christian families, Christian fathers and living faithfully for the Lord,” he said. “We are encouraging all Christians to join us for this rally and to support the opening weekend of the movie.”
