The Christmas Candle

From bestselling author, Max Lucado, comes THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE, a timeless holiday film for the entire family.

Deep in the heart of the English countryside lies the enchanting village of Gladbury. Legend has it every 25 years an angel visits the village candlemaker and touches a single candle. Whoever lights this candle receives a miracle on Christmas Eve. But in 1890, at the dawn of the electric age, this centuries old legend may come to an end.

When David Richmond (Hans Matheson), a progressive young minister, arrives in Gladbury, the villagers discover a new formula for miracles: good deeds and acts of kindness. While David’s quest to modernize Gladbury sets him at odds with the old world candlemaker, he finds an unlikely ally in the lovely skeptic, Emily Barstow (Samantha Barks). Now, the fiery candlemaker must fight to preserve the legacy of the Christmas Candle. But when the candle goes missing, the miraculous and human collide in the most astonishing Christmas the village of Gladbury has ever seen.

Grace Unplugged

Grace Unplugged is a faith-based movie that

Dads are going to watch with their daughters!

Watch the trailer below

A talented young singer and aspiring songwriter’s Christian faith and family ties are tested when she defies her worship-pastor father and pursues pop-music stardom in GRACE UNPLUGGED, a moving and inspiring new film that explores the true meaning of success.

Grace Trey has just turned 18 and aspires to do more than sing in her church’s worship band, which is led by her father, Johnny Trey. Grace longs to escape his shadow and make a name for herself singing songs about something other than God.

When Johnny’s former manager, Frank “Mossy” Mostin, shows up 20 years after the two parted ways to offer him another shot at the big time, Johnny declines the opportunity. But Grace takes it.  With each rung of the ladder she climbs, Grace feels pressure to compromise her Christian values and learns not everyone who says they’re on her side really is.  Will everything she experiences lead her to reject her faith … or rediscover it?

“Grace Unplugged is a powerful depiction of a God extending forgiveness and mercy toward us all.” Chris Tomlin

“A lot of films try to explore issues that don’t come off believable. Grace Unplugged successfully navigates how stardom in the music industry exposes our human frailty. I enjoyed it.”  Toby Mac

Starring: AJ Michalka, James Denton, Kevin Pollak, and Michael Welch with special guest appearances by Chris Tomlin, Jamie Grace, and Pia Toscano

Jimmy’s world is a place where a boy can grow to be a man, even if he is “special”.  Where angels hover, mostly unseen. Where danger can happen, and hearts can falter – but love is never wasted. Jimmy knows he’s different from the other teenagers in Piney Grove, Georgia.  He doesn’t always understand what he sees and hears, but he remembers it all with uncanny accuracy, which is why his lawyer father asks him to testify in a crucial trial.  Jimmy’s testimony saves the man from jail but has far-reaching consequences for himself and the people he loves. Filled with Southern characters at once familiar and unexpected, Jimmy is an extraordinary tale about growing up in the midst of real struggle.  From the first encounter with Jimmy to the last triumphant goodbye, Jimmy will enthrall and delight.

Starring: Bob Gunton (The Shawshank Redemption), Kelly Carlson (Nip/Tuck), Patrick Fabian (Saved by the Bell), Burgess Jenkins (Wesley), Chuck Carrington (JAG), Ted Levin (Monk), Greg Alan Williams (Remember the Titans)
