Parish News

Joyful Noise! – children’s tone chime and singing choir will begin rehearsals on Sunday, September 19th at 11:45 am-12:30 pm in the chapel area.
This ensemble is open to any child in grades 2 – 6. We will be playing tone chimes, not singing, for now; since children in this age group have not been vaccinated. Children do not need to read music in order to join. I will teach children how to do this. I am a recently retired public school music teacher. Children will need to be masked during rehearsals and when playing for worship services. Children will also be provided with gloves to wear when handling the tone chimes. 
If you have additional questions, please contact me at: wadejanet45@gmail.com or my phone: 219-241-6925 
I’m I’m looking forward to getting this musical ensemble together again!

August Pantry Report




Families served in August: 92;  Food provided for 231 people;  Kid’s Kits given out:  41.  The number of families coming for assistance from the pantry still remains low.  Therefore, food items and monies are still in good supply.  What may happen as government monetary support runs out and colder weather sets in is an unknown but supplies are ‘good for now.’  Congregations, Bible School programs, organizations and individuals continue to be very supportive!  An awesome amount of 4-H beef has been donated.  The Meijer’s pantry assistance program continues to provide good monetary support.  Bottom line:  any donations are appreciated even though there is not a big need at this time


Greatly appreciated awesome volunteers continue to give time ‘carefully’ in spite of the growing concerns regarding the virus.  Also a big  “welcome back” to Mike – a former ‘on leave’ volunteer.


It is great to realize how many have provided support through the years for this pantry program started 39 years ago by Charlie and Nan Steeves!


All help is appreciated.
