October 8, 2020

This event will kick off a season of hope for Mel Trotter and the population we serve. We hope that through this event we can begin to change the perceptions of homelessness in Grand Rapids, share the hope of Christ with more individuals, and continue to change the lives of those we serve by providing increased dignity, safety, and compassion.

One Life at a Time

Featuring Dean Cain and Luke Schroder, One Life at a Time highlights both the importance of awareness and the misconceptions of homelessness in West Michigan, in addition to having an historical nod to Mel Trotter in celebration of the mission’s 120th anniversary.

This movie was made possible through the generous contribution of a donor.

Event Format

Due to covid restrictions, our movie showing will be a classic “drive-in movie” style at Celebration Cinema North so you can watch from your car or van, with a private radio station to broadcast the movie directly into your vehicle. If theaters are opened before October 8th, a limited number of seats will be available in one of the theaters and we will fill them on a first come first serve basis. Snacks and beverages under the tent will be available throughout the movie. DVD’s of the movie as well as the book “Man with a Mission” will also be available.
