*THIS WED., DEC. 6th, SIGHT!: Dr. Ming Wang will be with us as we host a very special, FREE viewing of SIGHT, Dec. 6th, 6pm! Sight, starring Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning Greg Kinnear and Terry Chen, is based on the true story of Dr. Ming Wang, a poor Chinese immigrant, who defies all odds to become a world-renowned eye surgeon in the United States. Set in 1970’s rural China, a young Ming faces persecution and despair at every turn. Still, through the support of his dedicated family and his unwavering determination, he finds his way to America, attends Harvard and MIT, and helps develop an innovative technology that restores sight in millions. Taking on the seemingly impossible challenge of helping a blind orphan, the resilient Dr. Wang must reconcile with his own traumatic past and face the harsh reality that the strength of his own will can only go so far. 

(We will not have our 4:30pm prayer time, but popcorn and snacks will be available at 5pm. Dr. Wang’s presentation and movie will begin at 6pm.)
