To Save A Life - Unfortunately, teens today are hurting and facing challenges like never before. TO SAVE A LIFE is rated PG-13 because it doesn’t shy away from tough topics. It deals with social divisions, school violence, cutting, suicide, teen pregnancy and divorce—not in a graphic way, but in a way that is authentic to many teens’ lives. And it points to a way out of these problems through faith and reaching out to others. No Admission, donations accepted. September 9, 2010 @ 7:00pm, also on 9/10/10 at 7pm. Memorial United Methodist Church, 601 Centre St., Fernandina Beach, FL
