Hurricane relief for Tru Jacques and other Haitian communities


After Hurricane Matthew hit leaving much destruction and loss of life on the mainland of Haiti,many at Central have asked about our friends in Trou Jacques. It appears no lives were lost on the island of La Gonâve, however, their livelihood was devastated. In Trou Jacques alone 42 goats were washed away, gardens and plantings were destroyed, and residents are left without drinking water. They are incredibly resilient people, but still they need our help.

To assist our brothers and sisters in Trou Jacques and others in La Gonâve, please visit the La Gonâve Haiti Partnership Website (click here) to make a hurricane relief donation or read the latest updates on the community. Please continue to pray for the safety, health, and hope for all the Haitian communities.

Movie Night


Our in demand movie night takes us to the Asian Film Festival this Fall with the showing of “Chongquin Hotpot,” a hilarious comedy from China, on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. at the LeFont Theatre in Sandy Springs.

“Three high school classmates open a hotpot restaurant in an old bomb shelter. The business turns out to be a glorious failure. They find a buyer for the restaurant, but must first ‘enlarge the space.’ Digging out the floor, they emerge into the vault of the bank next door. Now they must devise a plan to sneak into the bank and fix the hole. Lucky break: a girl they know from high school is working in the bank. Bad break: the bank is the target of some badass robbers . . . with plot twists and comic timing – it’s a spicy hot riot!”

The movie is in Mandarin with English subtitles, but we all know that comedy is an international language.

Tickets are $9.40 and available online at or at the box office located at 5920 Roswell Road (two blocks north of the Perimeter) around the back of the Parkside Shopping Center.
