Threshing at the Tap - A few months ago, Pastor Bob shared in his sermon that middle-aged men are becoming socially isolated at an alarming rate in our country. To address this trend, we are providing men an opportunity to build some social connection and conversation with a new opportunity:
Threshing at the Tap: (def.) a gathering of men who mull over current issues or topics, where all points of view are heard, no decisions are made, and beverages are enjoyed.
Threshing at the Tap will take place every third Thursday, 7pm at various breweries in greater Indianapolis.
Our next Threshing at the Tap will be Thursday night, December 21st 7pm at 20 Tap, 5408 N. College Ave, Indianapolis.
Christmas Eve Service ~ Bring your family on Christmas Eve at 5:30pm to usher in the birth of Jesus with a special Christmas Eve Meeting for Worship featuring Jazz musical arrangements, Christmas reflections, silent meditation, and all in the beautiful ambiance of candlelight.
