Trunk or Treat
The kids love dressing up in costume, and we are glad to give them a safe place to do it. Youth at our Trunk-or-Treat event got to go around and collect candy from many different decorated trunks and even got to go on a hayride provided by Troy Thompson. Thanks to everyone who had a part in making this a successful, fun-filled evening!
Ft. Vallonia Days
Driftwood's Mission Team served beans for the 3rd year in a row at the Ft. Vallonia Days festival on October 15th and 16th. The money raised supports our mission team and their various projects. A big thanks to everybody who served and all who bought some beans!
Each year the folks at Driftwood like to get outdoors and spend some quality time at Starve Hollow. There was plenty of food to be shared, music by the Bluegrass Gospel Alliance and Surrender Road, and plenty of fun and fellowship.
Youth Group Kick-Off
September 7th marked our Youth Group Kick-off. It was the first night the church got together for youth group and Wednesday night classes since we took our Summer break. A big thanks to Freetown Church of Christ for letting us borrow their inflatable bounce-house!
Kentucky Mission Trip
On September 27-28 Driftwood sent a crew down to Kentucky in order to help out Patrisha (Trish) and Pearl. They had a very unstable stairway at the front entrance to their home that put both of them at risk of a nasty fall. Our team was glad to help out and installed the new deck with some help from Leonard Stone.
Country Cruisin' 2016
Despite the potential bad weather, Driftwood still had a wonderful turnout for the 7th annual County Cruisin' on August 13th. We had 50+ vehicles shown and nearly two hundred people attending. All sorts of prizes were won, including a motorcycle award in memory of Larry Thomas. We also enjoyed the great food provided by TJ's Bar-B-Que.
Ice Cream Social
Friends and family gathered for home-made ice-cream and some games on Sunday, August 7th. Everyone had a great time and the snacks were a real treat.
VBS - 2016
Our theme for VBS in 2016 was Heartbeat Hospital. We looked at how God, as the Great Physician, takes care of us and how we can have healthy spiritual hearts. We had games, lessons, snacks, and recreation each night for children ages 3-years to 5th grade. We also had worship and skits at the beginning of each session. We had an average of 60 people attending each night and raised $300.05 for FAME. We also would like to thank Hoosier Christian Village for letting us borrow some equipment to decorate our stage!
Ladies Salad Supper
Our ladies got a taste of more than salad at our annual Ladies Salad Supper this year. Each person was invited to participate in a slate painting demonstrated by a representative from the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts. We had over 100 ladies sign up for this event!
Tulips donated to Driftwood Christian Church by Wayne and Judy Gilbert. We would like to thank them as well as the many others who put so much work into making Driftwood so beautiful.
Every year Driftwood Christian Church has an Easter-egg hunt. This year was no different. We had over 1000 eggs laid out in the yards and 50 kids to go hunt for them. There was also a short devotional about the resurrection that was shared with the kids before the egg hunt.
New Years Eve 2015-2016
Driftwood joined the Brownstown Christian Church and the Brownstown Church of the Nazarene for New Years Eve. We had a great time playing dodge-ball and having pool and ping-pong tournaments. We brought the new year in with some worship through song, communion, and a prayer station. It was a good way to bring in the new year.
