    Join Marc Paskett-Cruz the week of Thanksgiving to help decorate the Memorial Garden in beautiful lights for Christmas.  We will be shutting down the fountain for the winter and would like to highlight the area for others to still enjoy time there with loved ones.  Such sacred space to enjoy in all seasons.

    The theme this year, “Joy to the World”, is meant to bring a little peace and joy to a world that has had a very stressful year. The parade will follow tradition and take place on the Monday after Thanksgiving, November 30, 2020 and begin at 7:00 PM, but it will NOT run along its normal route.

    The parade will start and stop at the Calhoun County Fairgrounds and run on a 9-mile loop around the entire town of Marshall, hitting all four quadrants and passing many parking lots. Residents may be able to watch the parade from their front windows, and visitors can view it from parked and heated cars along the route. Every entry will be motorized, there will be no walkers or animals in this year’s parade.

    Here is a map of this year's route:
    Christmas Parade Applications are due no later than 5:00PM on November 19. 2020

Sean Brumbaugh, Branch Manager of Kellogg Community Credit Union dropped off several bags of coats today to share with our neighbors! 

    You can drop off new or gently used winter coats in our lobby anytime. We will be dispersing them to those in need at There's Enough Community Exchange Store. May all our neighbors be covered in the warmth and love of Christ this winter!
