CHURCH PICNIC & FAMILY FUN DAY

The Church Picnic and Family Fun Day will be on Sunday, October 1 starting at 11:30 am. This event will be held at the Kiwanis Pavilion at Riverside Park. Everyone is invited to an afternoon of good food, great games, and wonderful fellowship. Immediately following morning worship the whole church will travel to Murphysboro Riverside Park for a picnic lunch of barbecue with all the trimmings.
