All-Church Hayride


                    Once again Dennis Bischke is inviting everyone to his farm for an

                  all-church hayride and bonfire on October 15! We’ll gather at his

                 home on Route 23 in Harvard at 4:00, ride to his woods, and hang

                 out around the fire until the cows come home (or we get too chilly!)

                 Please bring a snack to roast and share (see the sign-up sheet in

                 church), and make sure to invite family and friends!
