Common Ground Coffeehouse at Harbor Church

Friday, Feb. 2, at 7:15 p.m., screening “Dunkirk,” a film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. The film tells the incredible story of the evacuation of British soldiers who were trapped by Germany’s army in the harbor and on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, in late May and early June of 1940. The New York Times called it “brilliant... a tour de force war movie, both sweeping and intimate.” A light supper will be served at 6:30 p.m.; coffee and dessert will be available before the film begins at 7:15 p.m. No charge, but donations are welcome.
