Ice cream social set for Aug. 24

Posted on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 5:30 am

The annual Ice Cream Social will be held at New Harmony Christian Church on Sunday, August 24. Youth and those who are young-at-heart are invited to meet on the church grounds for games, including water balloons, at 4 p.m. Supper will begin at 5:30 p.m.
There will be several freezers of homemade ice cream to choose from, and everyone is invited to bring sandwiches, finger foods, and desserts for the meal.
Over 100 children will start the school year with new socks and undies thanks to this mission project being led by the CWF group at New Harmony.  Several of the ladies met at the church recently to sort and bag these new items for delivery to The Hope Center where they will be distributed.
Twenty children recently attended VBS at New Harmony with a “Super Heroes” theme.  They learned about Moses, David, Paul, and Jesus-just a few of the Super Heroes in the Bible.
They enjoyed learning about each of these heroes and making crafts that were an extension of the Bible lessons. A barbecue and carry-in lunch closed the activities on Saturday, August 2.
Thanks to the many adults who were instrumental in the planning and preparation for VBS.
