Erik Estrada To Host Film Screening At Abba's House

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Abba’s House will be hosting a free screening of a new faith based film called Finding Faith on Friday, Feb. 15, at 6:30 p.m.   Erik Estrada, starring in the film, will be at the screening.

Childcare will be provided for ages 6 weeks – 5th grade, but they must be pre-registered at www.abbashouse.com.  Everyone is welcome to attend the screening.

Mr. Estrada is best known for his leading role in the television series, ChiPs. Since that program, he has appeared in a long list of movies, television shows, and reality programs. Mr. Estrada is also the national celebrity spokesman for the Safe Surfin’ Foundation, the creators of the film Finding Faith.  

Review for Finding Faith:

Finding Faith is a full-length narrative motion picture that tells the true story of how a family found ‘Faith’ in their battle to find and rescue their 14-year old daughter ‘Faith,’ who accidentally falls victim to an online predator.  

Finding Faith highlights the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force edge-of-your seat efforts to rescue children from predators, often right before these children come to great harm. Even the tightest families and most guarded parents often cannot stop predators who have perfected their evil trade.

The film is based entirely on true events and observations from experts. It will wake parents, educators and concerned citizens to how children are being targeted. 

The screening at Abba’s House is part of a National Awareness Tour that Mr. Estrada and the film’s creator and executive director for the Safe Surfin’ Foundation are doing to bring consciousness to this issue.

In today’s world, pretty much all parents have had the conversation about technology and the challenges in keeping our kids protected online or on their smart phones. Whether being concerned about your elementary-aged child learning to use search engines or managing your high schooler’s growing dependency on social networking sites, this film is both entertaining and extremely educational.

Abba’s House is at 5208 Hixson Pike, just north of Northgate Mall.

Bob Tamasy: Hiding So We Can Seek

Remember the children’s game, “hide and seek”? Some of our grandkids still play it .What a simple game: One person closes his or her eyes, counts to 10, 20 – or 100 – while the others conceal themselves somewhere in the yard or the house. Younger ones get easily frustrated seeking to find the “hiders,” so after a few minutes it’s kind to let them “find” you. While I haven’t ... (click for more)
