Celebrate Recovery on the Plateau is pleased to announce a special movie night on Monday, September 8, starting at 6:30 PM (not our normal meeting time of 7:00), with a viewing of “HOME RUN”. The timing of this viewing coincides with the winding down of baseball season and September as National Recovery Month.
Everyone is invited to this PG-13 sports drama movie about a professional ball player who finds new hope when he gets honest about his checkered past. Childcare available!
Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control.
Hoping to save her client’s career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory’s agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. Forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, Cory can’t wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.
As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.
Based on thousands of true stories, “HOME RUN” is a powerful reminder that with God, it’s never too late…freedom is possible.

‘HOME RUN’ made me rethink my commitment to God as I had been “running” from everything. It was just what I needed to remind me that God loves me and that as scripture says, “there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” ~ Pennie
My wife and I went to see ‘HOME RUN’ and it was definitely a hit. We both held hands and wiped away tears! We are all recovering from something, but we CAN find freedom. Thank you for bringing a movie with the message of forgiveness and love! ~ Alejandro
