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.

Regional Assembly logo

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.
