lighthouse mission

Grab the peanut butter and jelly.  Add some gloves.  Throw in a hat.  Toilet paper is accepted.  Now put them in the box at the back of the sanctuary.  You have now supported the Lighthouse Mission's 5th Sunday project.  


The Lighthouse Mission offers many Wabash County residents the boost they need.  There is the opportunity to purchase items in their Thrift Store or receive that jar of peanut butter dropped in our donation box.

the sign

A SIGN?  


How in the world is a sign an opportunity?  After all, it is only a sign!


2018 statistics show Wabash County has 977.23 miles of roads.  Do you have even an inkling of the number of vehicle miles driven each day on those roads.  Are you ready?  953,000 miles!  If only 1% of those miles goes through Urbana --- my goodness.  Only a sign.  I think not.


Our sign inspires all that drive by.

WHITE's residential and family services

What a blessing those boys were to us!  What boys?  The boys in one of the cottage at White's.  


In February, they devoured pancakes at our annual pancake day.  In December, eleven boys devoured pizza at the Christmas party. The boys also received Bibles, mittens, crosses, and a shirt and blanket with their favorite team's logo.  Of course, since these boys like to eat, goodies were added to the cottage's pantry.


The children and teens living at White's have not had an easy life.  They struggle with their emotions.  They struggle with family dynamics.  They struggle!  Our goal is to make that struggle just a bit easier.
