It’s the age old debate of separation of church and state. Does that apply to after hours clubs at schools? The parents at Michael Evans school seem to think so and when he tries to start the God’s Club that was his late wife’s hearts desire; it stirs up a lot of trouble.
Trying to get over the loss of his wife, Evens and his daughter find new purpose in the club and fight to keep it. They are both persecuted for this as the Bible says Christians will be. His classroom is vandalized by some bullies and a fire is started outside their home. They don’t want to give up on something they know is changing hearts, even as others oppose them.
The story takes place in Vermont which always makes me nostalgic for my East Coast roots. Baldwin is convincing as a grieving widower but I think his daughter steals the show. She is bullied but stands firm and doesn’t give in to them, even though her father loses his temper on more then one occasion.
God’s Club is a great reminder that fighting for our faith can be a struggle but one well worth it if you follow through.
