RUSHVILLE — Arlington Christian Church

Arlington Christian Church is hosting Christian, twin-brothers and entertainers for a program of music, fun and inspiration at 6 p.m. this Sunday evening, Oct. 7. The public is invited to attend this double fun and faith program.

The program will be brought by Blaine and Boyd Cornwell, also known as The Master’s Encouragers. The twin brothers, born in Athens, Ohio, have traveled all over the United States since 1978, serving as ambassadors of Christ in schools, conventions and churches. Both are graduates of Ohio University and from Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Mo. They have taught in the public school and college. The twins are also caddies on the pro golf tour.

This Sunday’s program is part of area church’s Fifth Sunday Rally, where area churches travel from church to church to build Christian unity and mutual encouragement on the last Sunday night of months that have five Sundays. The most current fifth Sunday was last Sunday, Sept. 30, but this time was moved forward one week – to Oct. 7 – because that was when Blaine and Boyd were available to come.

“They are worth waiting for and we hope many of our neighbors will be able to join us for a unique evening of wholesome entertainment,” says Bob Brock, Minister of Arlington Christian Church.

The Gathering

The community is invited to join The Gathering from 4 to 6 p.m. Oct. 7 at Memorial Park for pumpkin painting, games and free food for the family. The evening will include great games and free hotdogs, chips and a drink. Everyone is welcome to enjoy this event that is fun for the family.
