South Jacksonville Presbyterian

Worship Service: Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

A Showing of At The River with Carolyn Crowder

The next event in our Flourishing Together series is scheduled for Wednesday, May 10th.

We are partnering with Palms Presbyterian and Riverside Presbyterian to bring 2 screenings of Carolyn Crowder’s “At the River” to Jacksonville.

At The River is a feature length documentary about a few young Presbyterian ministers serving churches in the Deep South in the 50s and 60s who bravely supported Civil Rights efforts through their sermons, community organizing and participating in marches and protests. The film chronicles the consequences they faced for these actions as well as director Carolyn Crowder’s first-hand experience as a young white girl from Montgomery.

The movie has been screened at churches across the Southeast; these will be the first screenings in Florida—on Wednesday, May 10th at SJPC and on Thursday, May 11th at Palms. Carolyn Crowder will introduce the film at both events. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with the screening beginning promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Admission is free; however, guests should register for the screening at SJPC at Eventbrite. The film is appropriate for youth 16 and older.
