Over the week leading up to and including the fourth of July, New Heights Fellowship –“the little church on Main Street” hosted its first-ever vacation Bible School.
The end of the week included a Freedom Celebration with free hamburgers, popcorn, cotton candy, music, prize drawings and dunk booth, which greeted participants on their way to and from the fireworks display downtown.
An estimated 600 people were served, and hundreds of volunteer hours were donated. All of the events of New Heights are free and open to the public. The church does no fund-raising and refuses donations events.
The concept is unique, Pastor Daniel Stevenson said. “Christ’s love is free and so is this event.”
New Heights Fellowship is located at 613 Main St. in East Toledo. For more information, call 419-469-8808.
Volunteers are needed to help set up for the Stony Ridge Festival July 23 beginning at 11 a.m. Help will also be needed with tear down July 26 beginning at 4 p.m.
Students looking for community service hours are welcome, as is anyone from the community.
Gibsonburg High School class of 1964 will hold a 45th class reunion the weekend of Sept. 18 and 19. Classmates who have not received a notice or who have questions may call Patty (Dudley) Pastorek at 419-698-9600.
