Tolkien..  You may attend just the dinner, just the movie, or come for the whole evening!

The deacons will be grilling and serving hamburgers and hot dogs provided by the church, while the sides and dessert will be brought potluck style by all who attend. A screening of the movie, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” will be shown in the Fellowship Hall. Tables will be set up “Cinebistro” style so you can eat and watch.
