Main Street Christian Church
Flight of the Fallen Concert Sunday Evening
Flight of the Fallen will present a service of inspirational music at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5 in the sanctuary of Main Street Christian Church. The Connersville based group consists of Aaron Milbourn, a 2011 Anderson University graduate in Music Business who is the worship pastor at Seymour Christian Church; Tyler McCoskey is a Ball State University junior major in Music Media Production, and Ben Leiter is a Purdue University junior working on a degree in Aeronautical Engineering Technology.
The group began when Aaron Milbourn and Ty McCloskey met while playing for a church praise band in Connersville. They recognized their complimentary talents and shared vision of using music to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. Their style includes folk, contemporary praise, world sounds, and light rock. Flight of the Fallen has drawn from an eclectic variety of influences including The Classic Crime, Shane and Shane, Gungor, and Hillsong United.
The groups CD’s includes the recently released “There is Hope” (2013), “Unshakable” (2012), “With Everything” (2011), and “Aaron Milbourn (2009).
Each year the group performs at numerous churches, festivals, camps and venues throughout Indiana. Group leader Aaron Milbourn stated: “Flight of the Fallen visually seeks to glorify God by using their musical talents as an avenue of brining hearts to praise and worship Christ.” A free-will offering will be received for Flight of the Fallen’s ministry.

Plum Creek Christian Church
What is it about the name of Jesus that offends people? For centuries his name has brought about strong emotions. As recorded in Acts 3 we read about how Jesus is able to work miracles of healing through his followers. Why would this be perceived as a bad thing? The sad truth is the religious leaders at the time were more concerned with their power than the power of Jesus. These same leaders had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them. They asked, “By what power or what name did you do this?” Peter answered, “ If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, then know this. It is the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is not other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Not Buddha not Muhammad nor Confucius died for you. Only Jesus died for your sins so you may be saved from hell. One day we will all die; where are you going to spend eternity? The choice is yours.
