Plans are in the works for a celebration
on July 7, 2019, to mark the 175th anniversary of Midway Christian Church which was chartered on July
To help with a special project planned for our anniversary, all members are asked to take a fabric square from the basket in the Narthex, trace your hand upon the square, cut the hand pattern out, and return it to the church. These patterns will be used to create a special banner that Melinda Whitehead has agreed to make for the occasion. The banner will be dedicated in January 2019 and used as our wall hanging for the year.
<---The finished banner will be similar to this design used by Belleview UMC in 2011.
If you have any questions or would like to help out with this project, please let Heather or Melinda know.
Save Your Bottle Caps!
In April 2018, we joined with Northside Elementary to help them complete their goal to collect 400 pounds of plastic caps and lids to purchase a park bench through Green Tree Plastics in Evansville, IN. After meeting that goal, and collecting enough caps for two additional benches, the next goal is to collect enough to purchase a Visitor's Table for the cafeteria.
View the complete list of acceptable caps and lids, as well as non-acceptable items. Please bring your clean caps and lids to the Narthex.

The 2018 Regional Assembly will be held at Beargrass Christian Church in Louisville, October 19-20. As always, there are many benefits of going to the Regional Assembly. First and foremost is the gathering of Christians for worship. The renewal of friendships and meeting new people is also a plus. The chance to learn about ministries that have the potential of helping congregations
is available in workshops and Assembly displays. And last, but not least, is the privilege of doing the
church's business for the Region.
And, on Sunday, October 21, MCC Convention Delegates Shirley Eckels and John Batts will report on their experiences at Regional Assembly.
Visit the Christian Church in Kentucky web site for more information and to download registration forms.
