Palestine Bible Church Seeking Pastor

PALESTINE — The Palestine Bible Church is accepting applications for the position of pastor.  

Located in Palestine, seven miles southwest of Warsaw on Ind. 25, the church is nondenominational and independent. It is a fundamental, Bible-believing church “with a strong desire to serve God and the Palestine community.”  

Because the congregation is small, the Palestine Bible Church can support only a part-time pastor.

For further information, contact Brett Boggs at 574-551-9933 or brettrb5@rtcol.com.

Sabbath Meeting At Bibles And Books

The Way of Spirit and Truth, a Sabbath meeting dedicated to discipleship and holiness, will meet at 6:30 p.m. Fridays at Bibles and Books in Warsaw.

Lecture To Focus On Rodeheaver’s Legacy

Dr. Terry White, who co-authored the centennial history of Winona Lake titled “Winona at 100: Third Wave Rising,” will present an illustrated lecture on Homer Rodeheaver’s work as a musician on Sunday.

White’s presentation will begin at 3 p.m. at the Warsaw First United Methodist Church. It will include a creative “Name That Rodeheaver Tune” audience-involvement contest. The program will conclude with a short hymn sing. Artifacts from Rodeheaver’s life and ministry will be on display.

Winona Lake was known in the early and middle 1900s as home of the world’s largest Bible conference. A key figure in that movement was evangelist Billy Sunday, who moved with his family to Winona Lake in 1911. Sunday’s music leader, choir director, and platform emcee was a young trombonist named Homer Rodeheaver. Rodeheaver worked with Sunday for 20 years, then established a school of music, an annual summer music festival and a publishing company that became the largest gospel music publisher in the world. Rodeheaver amassed copyrights from hundreds of authors, hired composers and editors to put them to music, and published and recorded some of America’s best-loved hymns and gospel songs, including “The Old Rugged Cross,” “In the Garden” and “Beyond the Sunset.”
