WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Area churches are reaching out to their communities -- to help those in need and to encourage people to check out what they have to offer. Some churches feed the hungry, while others provide entertainment as a way of getting people involved. The Bridge of Life Church in downtown Hagerstown, which invites the community to free movie screenings, also wants to help in the revitalization effort of the area, its pastor said. Bridge of Life opens its doors to anyone in the community to catch a free movie, and partake in drinks and popcorn, every other Saturday of the month.

No one wanted to be left out. As it turned out, we never found out what it was that was so interesting that night. However, later that week everyone received a text exclaiming the exciting news.
