Movie Monday

Monday Night Movies at the Warren Public Library will continue Dec. 2. This free event will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Slater Room on the third floor of the library. Complimentary popcorn will be available. This week’s PG-13 rated, 101 minute film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Salma Hayek. The all-star comedy cast from Grown Ups returns (with some exciting new additions) for more summertime laughs. Lenny (Adam Sandler) has relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises: the last day of school. Call the library at 723-4650 for the exact title of this and other movies in this series as the library’s movie license does not permit listing the titles of movies outside the library.

Missions at UM Church reported

Members of Covenant United Methodist Church are busy with several mission projects. Fresh fruits and vegetables which adorned the harvest table have been taken to the Ruth M. Smith Home, and 25 boxes were filled for Operation Christmas Child. Angel Tree boxes are due Dec. 1. Non perishables may be taken to the church on Dec. 8 and 15 for the Salvation Army while members also support them by ringing the bell two days at Warren Shurfine. An ongoing three-year commitment is a monthly pledge for a young couple as missionaries to Africa. A donation was also made to Release Time for students to attend religious education. Future projects include preparing health kits and filling flood buckets.
