Barely Baptized written by Melanie Wilderman & directed by Sheryl Martin
In his new career path as a youth minister, Jake faces a tough crowd: the teenagers in the youth group who absolutely adored his predecessor. Fresh from Bible college, Jake has plenty of tactics ready to win them over. However, when the overly optimistic new minister tells the teens they can “ask him anything,” the questions land Jake in the middle of a biblical debate he never would have predicted. With Ahrla Daison, Moira Mosely, Noah Sweet, Daniel Rios, Beck Bales, Rick Lockett, and Carly Risenhoover-Peterson.

With Aaron Bushong and Chelsea Bushong.
Meemaw’s Bear Tales written & directed by Sarah King Bartell
A grandmother separated from her grandkids tries to entertain them with some good old southern folktales as you've never heard them before, with brand-new origin stories such as How the Bear Learned to Hibernate, How the Mouse Got Her Long Tail, and How the Fish Got Her Gills. These charming stories examine Americana and stereotypical American traits such as resourcefulness, cunning, and persistence. With Sue Ellen Reiman.
