VOLUNTEERS NEEDED !!! Can you surf? Do you have an email address yourself? Then you're qualified to help! [If possible, email us ahead to let us know you can help. But don't let that hold you back -- the main thing is that you come on Saturday morning and be ready to help others.]

Also, the 'Prayer On The Move' Trailer will be onsite that morning by the 9 a.m. Registration time. Come visit. See this specially-equipped trailer, and meet others who are regularly praying for our city.

The event is hosted at the Unleavened Bread Cafe, in conjunction with the TechMission [free] training program conducted there every Saturday morning.

Everyone is warmly welcome... and volunteers are appreciated any Saturday morning.

Judy O'Bannon features 'Community Buiders East'

Everyone at the cafe knows Dan Gushee, the cafe ministry's board-chairman. What you may NOT know, is that as a result of a Bible study at the cafe, Dan 'connected' with Mark Stout, and quickly became friends in urban ministry.

Good things come from 'connecting'. [And the cafe is just the place for it!] The following story demonstrates this principle...

Recently, former Indiana First-Lady Judy O'Bannon featured Mark & Dan on her public television show... "Communities Building Community".

And here's a link to 'Community Builders East'... helping rebuild inner-city homes in the Brookside Park area.
