Save Your Bottle Caps!

plastic caps clipartIn 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.

Community Vacation Bible School

VBS - Splash Canyon logo

July 9-13, 2018

A Midway Community Vacation Bible School will be held July 9-13 from 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. at various local churches. We will begin each session in the Community Garden behind Midway United Methodist Church at 103 N. Turner Street. A meal will then be served at Midway Methodist Church. The youth will then walk to the host church of the evening.

The theme is "Splash Canyon: God's Promise on Life's Wild Ride". Life is full of thrills and spills; we may not know what's around the bend, but God does! At Splash Canyon, kids discover that Jesus is by their side on life's wild ride. God saves us through Jesus and gives us life and hope every day and forever.


Volunteers Needed: Midway Christian will host VBS on Tuesday, July 10. We will need helpers to set up the evening before, volunteers to help with Bible, art, and games on the 10th, as well as a Class Shepherd each night.

To volunteer or register your child, please sign up in the narthex, or visit the Midway Community VBS web site.
