From the social committee: RSVP for the Adult Euchre Night event coming up this Saturday evening at the church! We will start at 7pm with a quick time of teaching, so if you don't know how to play Euchre, this is a great chance to learn! Please text or call Anna (765-714-0868) to sign up! We are also asking that you bring a snack to share. If you are in need of childcare for the evening, please let me know and I will try to help you find a high school student available to help out. We also would love to have friends! If you have friends who love Euchre, or just love having fun, please invite them to join us!

Last Sunday night we heard a presentation from Beni Wilson about their work with International Students, Inc. You can find more information about donating to their work here. If you'd like to speak personally with the Wilsons, you can contact them at, or 785-410-5244.
