First Church of God

First Church of God in Rushville will be hosting a couple of special events next week:

Fall Craft Fair

On Saturday, Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the church will be having a Fall Craft Fair in the gymnasium. Several vendors will be selling: hand made crafts, jewelry, holiday gifts, candles, baked goods and much more. There will also be a concession stand available for all patrons. Please call 932-5139 for more information.

Trunk or Treat

On Thursday, Oct. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. rain or shine the church will be having their annual Trunk or Treat for the children of the community. There will be plenty of treats, games and prizes for all the kids plus popcorn and drinks for all that attend. This is a free event and all are invited.

St. Paul’s United Methodist Church

Indiana Area United Methodist Bishop, Bishop Mike Coyner, will be preaching at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church this Sunday, Oct. 20. It is Homecoming Sunday at St. Paul’s and there will be one worship service at 10 a.m. with a congregational photo and a lunch to follow.

“Bishop Mike” as most people call him, is originally from Anderson. He served churches of various sizes, served as a district superintendent of the former Lafayette District, and was also the executive assistant to Bishop Woodie W. White for the Indiana area. He was elected bishop of the United Methodist Church in 1996 and was assigned to the Dakotas area where he served two terms as resident bishop. In 2004 he was assigned to serve the Indiana area, and in 2012 he was assigned to a third term.

Bishop Mike and his wife, Marsha, live in the Indianapolis area where the Bishop’s office is located. He oversees the life and ministry of more than 1,200 United Methodist congregations in Indiana, including more than 200,000 members organized into 10 districts. Under Bishop Mike’s leadership, the former North and South Indiana Conference voted in 2008 to create a new Indiana Conference, which was launched in 2010.
