Summer, 1946. The Cousteau family, Jacques, his wife Simone and their two children Philippe and Jean-Michel, live in their beautiful house by the Mediterranean Sea. By day they dive, by night they watch the stars. It’s paradise on earth. But Jacques is never content. He hungers for the adventure of the undersea world, and believes in the virtues of progress. With his invention, the aqualung, his recently acquired vessel, the Calypso, and a crew of free-spirited adventurers led by his wife, Simone, Jacques is ready to cross the world’s oceans. Ten years later, back from the boarding school, Philippe finds his father greatly altered as an international celebrity. Jacques cannot see it yet, but Philippe already understands that progress and pollution have begun to lay waste to the submarine world. Yet father and son’s voyage to Antarctica may be their greatest adventure yet.  This PG-13 rated film has a running time of 123 minutes.

A group of Christians and community helpers have put aside all differences to help raise money for our government primary and middle schools at their first annual No Pulse, Just God: Benefit Concert on Saturday, March 17th.

Blaming one another for the things we can change is useless and only divides us. Right now, our schools don’t have funding to fix classrooms, pass health regulations, fix facilities, fund workshops, take children on field trips, or have money to get supplies to help with day-to-day lessons. The title No Pulse, Just God comes from the idea that when we do things for the sole purpose to do God’s will, we are no longer just a human with a pulse breathing the air he gives to us; we are one with God.

From 6.30pm at First Church of God on North Shore, performers will include church members from.different denominations throughout the island including some pastors as well as people in the community from throughout the island as well as special guests.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children, free for under 5s, and are available from the main office at the church.

For more information, contact 703-2771 or nopulsejustgod@gmail.com.
