Sanibel Community Church will host a family movie night for free.

It will present "I Can Only Imagine" on Aug. 19 at 5 p.m. in the Main Sanctuary.

The movie follows the life of MercyMe lead singer Bart Millar. According to Millar, the lyrics to the song took only minutes to write, but a lifetime to craft. The move is a compelling story of a boy in a troubled home with a broken relationship with his father that fueled his dream for the music industry.

"Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur," the movie's website states. "When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart's troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspired him to write the hit song 'I Can Only Imagine' as singer of the Christian band MercyMe."

Free hot dogs and drinks will be served at 4:30 p.m.

A love offering will be received for Florida Baptist Children's Homes.

Sanibel Community Church is at 1740 Periwinkle Way.
