Second Sunday Summer Picnic
This Sunday July 12, we will have our second of the three summer picnics in the place of Sunday school hour. Please bring only finger foods (sandwiches, chips, relish trays, cookies) for carry-in. Drinks will be provided. Bring your own table service, chairs and/or blankets to eat outside if the weather permits.
We'll have a short congregational meeting this Sunday, July 12. The only agenda is to look at a first draft of next year's budget.
Thank you for the many prayers, visits, phone calls, good wishes, cards, and the beautiful bouquet from the church. Having had four bypasses has made quite a change to my body. With Lori's help, God's healing and good medical care, I am gradually gaining strength. Ron Good

Electric Vehicle Charging Station
It may come as a shock to people that GC has had an electric vehicle (EV) charging station for almost a year. On the north side of the Chairman Building at the college sits the first public level-two charging station in Goshen. The EV charging station came from a $5,000 grant that GC received from NIPSCO in 2013. The college spent half of the grant on the charging station. Glenn Gilbert, utilities manager and sustainability coordinator at the college, said that for the college, it was a sort of “cart before the horse” situation. Learn more
