THIS SUNDAY'S SPECIAL OFFERING – Our monthly offering cause (September 26) is for Bethany Christian Services. Bethany supports vulnerable kids and families in the U.S. and globally, through foster care and family preservation, refugee services, adoption, and more. Did you know that today 140 million kids don't have a permanent home? At Bethany, they witness what happens when people choose love. Not theoretical, unblemished love, but the real, messy, imperfect kind. Love that empowers vulnerable kids and families everywhere. The children hurting at home, and the ones unprotected at a border. The orphans and vulnerable children who feel alone, and the refugees living in a world of uncertainty. Everyone deserves to be loved. Together, we can change the world through family.

WOMEN'S WEDNESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY – ALL women are invited to the Women's Wednesday Evening Bible Study that begins September 29 at 6:30 p.m. meeting at 10847 Mathias Drive, St. John, Indiana. We will be discussing and studying I Peter - A Living Hope In Christ by Jen Wilkin.  If you are interested in joining this study, please contact the church office at (219) 558-0573.
