When a broken-hearted boy loses the treasured wooden nativity given to him by his now deceased father, his mother goes to the local woodcarver in hopes of obtaining a replacement. Jonathan Toomey, known to the village as “Mr. Gloomy” takes the job – but refuses to promise anything by Christmas.

Fish Eyes | Feb 9 – Mar 31 

A routine morning in a small fishing town. Two brothers. Fishermen who had a poor catch last night. They have no idea that they’re about to encounter a man who will change their lives forever. This stranger is different, simple, wise, vulnerable but strong. They soon learn more about him and in the process, themselves. Full of surprises, questions, confusion, pain, joy, and miracles. The story of Jesus and the disciples has fascinated us for two thousand years. Fish-Eyes is another look at how this God-man affected the world through two very human sets of eyes- Peter and Andrew. It’s humorous, identifiable, simple… and sure to move you.
