The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center would like to invite the community to their FREE April movie, won’t you be my neighbor. Join UMC of SCC on Friday, April 12, for popcorn and a great movie, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor.” There will be two showings, a matinee at 3 PM and an evening showing at 6 PM. This is a free movie for the community. For more information, call the office at 813-634-2539. The church is located at 1210 Del Webb Blvd West in Sun City Center.

Charmingly soft-spoken and yet powerfully incisive expressing his profound ideals, Fred Rogers was a unique presence on television for generations. Through interviews of his family and colleagues, the life of this would-be pastor is explored as a man who found a more important calling to provide an oasis for children in a video sea of violent bombardment. That proved to be his landmark series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (1968), a show that could gently delve into important subjects no other children’s show would have dared for that time.

Rogers experienced a career where his sweet-tempered idealism charmed and influenced the world whether it be scores of children on TV or recalcitrant authorities in government. However, that beloved personality also hid Rogers’ deep self-doubts about himself and occasional misjudgments even as he proved a rock of understanding in times of tragedy for a world that did not always comprehend a man of such noble character.
