When promising high school basketball player Eric “Hoovey” Elliott collapses on the court, doctors discover a lifethreatening brain tumor. Hoovey will survive the high-risk surgery, but at what cost? Can he relearn to walk, read, even to see clearly? The road is long, and meanwhile overwhelming medical bills threaten to undo everything his parents, Jeff and Ruth, have taken a lifetime to build. With seemingly no one to turn to—but with tenacity and love born of faith—an entire family regains its footing. Hoovey learns to read again, to dribble and shoot a basketball and, finally, stepping out in faith, he’s back on court for another shot at his dream. This is a great opportunity to invite your family, friends, and neighbors to an event at the church. Cost is $5 per person, and you can reserve your spot at the Welcome Desk. *Teens have an afterglow next Sunday, March 15th, following the Evening Service to go bowling.
