Upcoming Events:

As part of Brookville Halloween Weekend, on October 28, starting at 6:30pm, we will be showing Charade, staring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.  Mystery, laughter, and romance all rolled into one, Charade is great fun.  The movie is free, and we will have popcorn!

Tap Into Faith is November 9, at Dirty Ehrma’s, at 7pm.  Join us for a pint or dinner as we discuss the complex relationship between the church, Christians, and the state.

On November 18 we will go to DuBois and volunteer on the current Habitat for Humanity house.  Habitat requires workers be age 16 or older; we aren’t sure exactly what work we will be doing, but wear warm clothes.  Meet us at 8:30a at the church to carpool or at 300 S. Main Street at 9a (location of the house).  We will work until around 1p.

We’re hosting another trivia night on November 29, at 7pm at Fusion Atelier, 185 Main Street Brookville.  The event will feature six rounds of ten questions, with topics ranging wide.  We’ll have some snacks, but feel free to BYOB.
