Bus Tour to Bible Walk in Mansfield Ohio on September 16.   The church bus will leave at 9 am and travel to Mansfield for a 30-minute tour.     www.biblewalk.us/tours              

The primary message of Jesus was His teaching on the Kingdom. This kingdom has been referred to as, The Secret kingdom, The Invisible Kingdom, and The Powerful Kingdom; but for most people it is thought of as a Misunderstood and Unattainable Kingdom. This tour is not only inspiration and educational, but will also show you how to access this Kingdom and become a citizen. In this world of uncertainty, division and turmoil; please know there is an unshakable Kingdom of Love. In the words of Jesus Himself;  “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness.”  this tour is approximately 30 minutes. 

All tours are wheel chair accessible, and the hallways are lined with benches to provide adequate seating.

After the tour, we will drive back through Wooster and have lunch at the Pine Tree Barnwww.pinetreebarn.com        

The cost of the tour is $5.25 / $5.50 per person. Please sign up at the information station or call the office if you would like to attend.

Holiday Drive North Canton  North Main St, North Canton, OH 44720

                                  

This year’s Winterfest event, featuring the city’s annual tree lighting, will be reimagined as Holiday Drive North Canton, safely bringing holiday magic to our community.
The North Canton Chamber of Commerce and its partners the City of North Canton, the North Canton Public Library and the North Canton Jaycees have made a commitment to maintaining the wonder of our city’s cherished holiday tradition despite the fact that for the first time in 100 years, the community will not gather in a crowd to watch the lighting of the city’s Christmas Tree.
Holiday Drive North Canton is a drive through event that will extend from 7th Street to Waterside on North Canton’s Main Street. For three consecutive Saturdays, December 5, 12 and 19, Main Street will “light up” with holiday merriment from 5-7 p.m.
Those driving on Main Street will find Santa and Mrs. Claus at the town center, choirs singing carols, characters dressed up throughout, and the businesses on Main Street decorated and lit up as we bring as much joy as we can to the community during this difficult time.
Letters to Santa and donations of Toys for Adopt a Family will be collected by the North Canton Jaycees in the on-street parking spaces in front of City Hall.
The North Canton Public Library will offer special holiday themed Library to Go kits in advance of each Holiday Drive event. Details coming soon!
