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. To reach this goal, they needed an additional 100 pounds.
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.
Once this project is complete, the collection of plastic
bottle caps will be an on-going project for Midway Green
Chalice. The hope is to create benches for our church,
the Midway Community and Christmount.

8th Annual Special Community Worship
Service of Peace and Hope
September 9, 2018
As we have done since 2011, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 tragedies, we will gather for a special community worship service centered around our calling as people of faith to be people of peace and hope and to stress our connection and unity as a community. This year's service, hosted by the Midway Area Ministerial Association will be on Sunday, September 9, at 11:00 a.m. at Walter Bradley Park.
Following the service, everyone is invited to stay and celebrate a meal together as the Midway Community. The MMA will provide the meat, and everyone is asked to bring a side dish or dessert to share.
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.
