All men, all ages are welcome on the last Saturday of each month. We encourage you to invite friends as well. There’s always plenty of room, great food, and good fellowship. So plan to join us in January!

THANKSGIVING DINNER OUTREACH: Grace & Albert Luttrell, their family, and volunteers will offer a traditional Thanksgiving meal as a community outreach on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, from noon-2:00pm at the Patoka United Methodist Church Family Life Center. They will cook, serve, and deliver food for anyone who needs a hot meal. If you (or someone you know) can’t prepare a meal, are alone this year, or can’t get out of your home, they would like to help you enjoy a home cooked Thanksgiving dinner. If you (or someone you know) would like to come enjoy dinner, or require a meal delivered, please call 812-664-0981 by November 20th. Volunteers are still needed and welcomed. If you’d like to lend a hand, or donate to help offset the cost of this outreach, please call 812-664-0981 for more information. If you plan to attend the dinner, or need to sign up for delivery, you can also pick up a flyer on the foyer table, provide the contact information requested, and turn the flyer in to Grace or Albert no later than November 20th.

Regular – 240 pints / 22 ½ half pints

“I don’t believe there is one great thing I was made to do in this world.
I believe there is one great God I was made to glorify. And there will be many ways, even a million little ways, I will declare his glory with my life.” (Emily P. Freeman)
