Jim Moles leads a walking group If you would like to walk with church friends, meet at the south parking lot of Fairbanks Park, near the boat dock, just across from the YMCA at 10:00 Saturday morning. You can walk as fast or as slow as you like, as many laps as you like, there are lots of benches for resting, and we’ll be walking along the beautiful Wabash river. Kids are welcome, dogs are welcome, everyone of all ages is welcome. Come on out on Saturday mornings for some fresh air, exercise, conversation, and fun. If it rains, we’ll wait for better weather. Hope to see you!
YOUTH GROUP FUNDRAISERS: 7th Cents Youth Group gives a big thank you to everyone that attended the Family Fun Night Auction fundraiser. The donations toward our summer mission trip were an amazing $1040! Funds to help us get to Nashville, TN are still needed and we have two opportunities coming up for you to help and all you have to do is dine out! Enjoy a meal at Fazolis on Thursday, May 10 (11:00 am and 8:00 pm) or IHOP on May 17 (4:00 – 8:00 pm) and tell your server that you are supporting the 7th Cents Youth Group. Each restaurant will donate 20% of your bill to our group. More information and reminders will be coming.
