Bluffton, Indiana, was nicknamed “The Parlor City” over a century ago because its paved streets (a new phenomenon at the time) made the city “as clean as your parlor."
The Bluffton Area Ministerial Association will sponsor its annual summer community worship service on Sunday, July 29. The service begins at 9 a.m. and is held on the Bluffton Presbyterian Church lawn.
The theme is "For the Beauty of the Earth" and the service will continue the VBS theme from the previous week.
This year, there will be only one offering taken, and that will be for the community food pantry.
The usual snack of grapes and muffins will be offered. Worshippers are invited to bring some if you are able. All extra grapes and muffins will be donated to Our Daily Bread Food Pantry of Lima. Also, be sure to bring your lawn chair.
The outdoor service has never been rained out, but should it be raining, the service will be held in the middle school cafetorium.
