ARC TOGETHER:  Have you been considering being a get-together host?  Now is a great time to fill out a host volunteer form and put it in the TOGETHER box.  Get-togethers have just begun.  Additional hosts would be appreciated in order to be able to include more people in a timely manner.  Let’s be deliberate about getting together, strengthening relationships, welcoming newcomers and engaging in fellowship and fun with one another.  If you have questions, or if it would be easier to volunteer via text, feel free to contact Kristi (219-964-9957 or 987-5195) or Donna (219-730-9824 or 987-4289). 

ADVANCE NOTICE:  Family pictures for the new church directory will be taken on August 6, 7, and 8.     Further details to come.
