Overview

Title: Space, Hope, and Charity - Movie Night!  

In person and on Zoom.  Please RSVP using the "I will be attendiing" tab below near the bottom of this page.

We have been offered a great opportunity for a special preview screening of an exciting new movie before it hits the theaters.  Please join us for this special event hosted by the producers.

This film is an independent documentary about Charity Woodrum, a young woman from rural Oregon whose dream of becoming an astrophysicist is nearly derailed when she suffers a devastating tragedy.

Charity was a nontraditional university student, raised in poverty, the first in her family to graduate from high school. In her mid-20s, she was married and nine months pregnant when she decided to return to school to study physics. Life felt perfect. Then, what she calls "The Worst Day." Her world was destroyed.

With help from friends old and new, she finds her way back to the distant galaxies where she feels most at peace.

 UPDATE AUGUST 31: Charity Woodrum will be joining us via Zoom!
