October Events

Hello All,

We still have 2 events this month! Christ in the City is on Thursday, and we’re visiting the residents of Worthington Christian Village on Saturday.

October events start already on 10/1 with a prayer vigil outside Planned Parenthood as part of 40 Days for Life.  Please join us if you can!

We’ve had a great response already to the screening of Unprotected!  38 tickets have been reserved, but we need to get 40 more reserved so that its life-changing message can be presented!  The flyer is attached as well in case you have someplace to post it.
