Did you know that baseball legend Jackie Robinson, who broke the race barrier in Major League baseball, was Methodist? And Robinson’s faith was one reason Branch Rickey, general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers and also a devout Methodist, decided to sign him.

Join us for a screening of 42, the critically acclaimed 2013 movie, which tells the story of two men who changed the game of baseball. And, hear what Harrison Ford, as Branch Rickey, has to say about Methodists. Whether you love baseball or just a great story, you’ll love this movie.
