First Baptist of Ivy Gap’s 100th anniversary picnic was a smashing success, except for one little thing: the bolt of lightning that struck the church’s steeple, igniting a fire that destroyed the sanctuary and so much more. In the wake of the disaster, key women of the church – led by Edith, the Pastor’s take-charge wife – gather in what’s left (the fellowship hall) to commiserate and try to put things back together. To raise spirits and funds for rebuilding, the women plan an evening of entertainment designed to showcase the congregation’s talent. Change is in the air as these six women challenge institutions as well as each other. Along the way, there are laughs to be shared, battles to be fought, love to be won, relationships to be mended, and losses to be grieved.
