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 20, 1844.

Missions clipart

Each month leading up to celebration, we will embark on a new 175th Anniversary Mission Project.

January: Begin a collection of 175 hats and mittens for the Hope Center (homeless shelter) in Lexington.

February: Members are asked to be a part of our 175 Acts of Kindness challenge for the month of February. Maybe write a note to a sick person, volunteer at the humane society, or buy Girl Scout cookies! Tell us about your act of kindness by writing about it on paper hearts to be displayed on the sanctuary.

A special hymn is being commissioned to celebrate our 175th Anniversary! Johnie Dean has agreed to write a piece of music for us to be sung by the choir during our July celebration. Please send any ideas for the text and scriptures that fit/describe Midway Christian Church to the church office.

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 finished banner will be similar to this design used by Belleview UMC in 2011.

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.
