Common Ground Coffeehouse at Harbor Church

This Friday, March 30, at 7:15 p.m., the Common Ground Coffeehouse at Harbor Church will screen the historical drama, “Darkest Hour,” set in 1940 as France is about to fall to the Nazis and the Allied forces are cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk — and as Winston Churchill becomes Britain’s Prime Minister. Gary Oldman’s portrayal of the combative Churchill earned him the 2018 Best Actor Academy Award. A light supper will be served at 6:30 p.m.; coffee and dessert will be available before the film begins at 7:15. No charge, but donations are welcome.
