"I am the Vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5) It is our desire to always abide in JESUS CHRIST, our Lord and Savior, and to bear much fruit...hence "Fruitbearers."
"The fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, and SELF-CONTROL. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23

Movie Review: Pete's Dragon
Opening Date: Friday, August 12th
Rating: PG Running Time: 95 minutes
Pete's Dragon is an imaginative film about Pete (Oakes Fegley), a 10 year old orphan and his green dragon friend, Elliot. An old wood carver, Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has been telling local children about a dragon that lives in the forest but no adult ever takes him seriously, not even his own daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) who works as a forest ranger. But all that changes when Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11 year old girl finds Pete and follows him into the forest. Natalie's dad, Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill and is Grace's boyfriend. Natalie, Jack, and Grace try to help Pete adjust to the world outside the forest but he doesn't want to leave Elliot alone. Jack's brother, Gavin (Karl Urban) encounters Elliot and is determined to hunt down & capture the dragon. This is a charming movie about adventure, rescue, friendship, and family. "Magical realism" is beautifully achieved! Visually stunning! Excellent cinematography! Computer-generated Elliot is well done. Fantastic performance by the cast. The two young actors are so natural. My family and I enjoyed Pete's Dragon and highly recommend this feel-good, family-friendly film.
