A special anniversary banner is in the works.

The patterns of our hand tracings on fabric will be used to create this banner to be used as our wall hanging for the year.

<---The idea for this banner was inspired by this design used by Belleview UMC in 2011.

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.
