HAMILTON COUNTY KIDS COATS DRIVE
Clean out your closets and help those in need! It’s time for our annual coat drive with our partnership with Hamilton County Kids Coats. Bring donations of new or gently used WASHED coats, gloves, hats, and boots and place them in the large grey bin located outside of Fishers UMC at Door 4 by October 12th. Apparel will be distributed at various churches around Hamilton County in November and help children in need this winter.

MONTHLY BOOK CLUB
Join the Monthly Book Club in September as they read and discuss Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze. Crossroads Crisis Center owner Benjamin Brandt has lost everything he loved – his wife and son. Grief-stricken Ben lost faith. Three years of trying to find their killers has brought a dead end. Now, a mysterious woman appears seeking answers and help—a victim who eerily resembles Ben’s deceased wife Susan. A woman robbed of her identity, her life, of everything except her faith—and Susan’s necklace. Their only hope is to work together, trust each other, and face whatever they discover head on. But will that be enough to save their lives and heal their tattered hearts? If you are looking for a way to combine your love of reading and books with a small group atmosphere of fellowship, this is the place for you! We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month. This month, we will meet on September 22 (Location TBD) at 7:00pm. If you are interested or need more information, contact Kim Arnott at 797-8612 or .

PHILIPPIANS STUDY
We invite you to join Pastor Ben in a 4-week study on the Book of Philippians. In coordination with a sermon series, this study will explore the Book of Philippians, a wonderful book about gratitude and joy – topics that we all need to hear about during this uncertain time. Many small groups will be using this study as well so if you are not involved with a group at this time or if your group will not be participating, consider joining us on Wednesday evenings. The study will be written by Pastor Ben and be held using Zoom on 4 Wednesdays, beginning September 23 at 6:30pm. We hope you will consider joining us on this journey through Philippians!
