Heaven and hell: The First Congregational Church of Williamstown will offer a free viewing of the provocative film "Good People Go To Hell, Saved People Go To Heaven" at the church, 906 Main St., today at 11:20 a.m. Following the viewing, the film's director North Adams native Holly Hardman will her work. The documentary film examines fundamentalist evangelical Christian faith in rural southern Louisiana in the years after Hurricane Katrina and offers fresh insight into the complex and controversial world of Christian evangelical belief.
