Sunday, September 7 | 12 Noon to 2:30 PM
This years event will be even better than last year! Why you ask? Well, we have more businesses in our community invested in providing resources that will enable us to keep this event a FREE event for the whole family., It’s an opportunity to share God’s amazing love with our community and our neighbors. Members from Step One have shared in the planning with our DEWS members and our hope is that many will not only come to the event, but help with the set up and clean up., Last year we had over 300 people come and this year we are expecting even more. So invite your friends, coworkers, neighbors and family.

We will have great food as usual:  Hot Dogs, Pulled Pork Sliders, Root Beer Floats, Popcorn, and more!

There will be musical entertainment from our own praise band, as well as great activities for adults and children such as:  Photo Booth, Water Balloon Drop, Jail, Face-painting, Minute-to-Win-It Games, Bike Parade, just to name a few!

See you Sunday!

Scholarship Awards & Silent Auction

Sunday, October 5 - After Worship
The event is just around the corner. You have already put it on your calendar.
But we still need :
1.)    You and your family to come and join the fun on Sunday October 5, 2014 right after the second service by attending the Pot Luck Luncheon.
2.)    Your willingness to consider bidding at the Silent Auction or your helping to provide items that others will consider bidding on.
Remember that all the money raised will be used to support members of our Church in completing their educational dreams. We helped six Aldersgate members pursue their dreams this year. How many will we be able to support next year? We already have donated items for the Silent Auction but would like to have many more. Donations may be in the form of “services” as well as goods. Be creative.  Please consider how you can support the Aldersgate Scholarship Grant Fund. If you have any questions please contact the committee at

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 – 12 Noon at Aldersgate

We invite you to join us this month to enjoy a great meal, good fellowship, and great entertainment. Call for a reservation 419-292-1004.

This is the month we provide our kitchen staff some well deserved time off by having a Pot Luck lunch. Meatballs and drinks will be provided and we would like our guests to bring salads, side dishes or desserts to share. I know we always look forward to the variety of dishes brought in to taste.  We will be welcoming The Area Office on Aging and there will be two speakers giving vital Fire and Falling Safety information for seniors. They will also be sharing opportunities for seniors to volunteer. This information should be quite helpful for many of us whether we live alone or have a spouse.
