“The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone”

Coming to Tinsel Town on March 15th

A number of us from Medford Friends got to attend the Medford premier showing of this movie and found it to be great fun with a powerful message; every person is created by God, is loved by Him and has a purpose which God placed in them. It is also a wonderful tool to open a conversation about Jesus with a child or anyone else who watches it. 

It is the hope of the producers of this movie that as many kids as possible can see it as it plays around the country and that many would come to faith in Jesus. Please be praying that the Holy Spirit would use this movie to bring many children and families to faith in Jesus and ask Jesus who He would have you to take so they may come to know Him. 

If you are thinking about going, please remember that the opening weekend of any movie is crucial to how long it plays in the theater so you might think about trying to see it between March 15th and 17th.
