Spiritual Life Center schedule for the fair


Staff report



GREENVILLE — The Greater Greenville Ministerial Association will once again this year be heading up the “Spiritual Life Center” at the Ohio Center (the former WDRK building).

Typically, the building will be open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Oftentimes in the morning, free coffee will be available along with cold water throughout the day. On some days, the hosting church may be having a Vespers Service, music or some other special activities.

Prayer requests can always be shared at any time, especially as this year’s theme is, “Pray For Our Nation.”

“Anyone is welcome to come in and sit down and eat or just relax,” said organizers.

The Pregnancy Help Center will have a display in the building with a number of volunteers taking part throughout the fair. There will also be information on the Wayne Healthcare Chaplaincy program, the Grace Resurrection Community Center, Darke County Youth for Christ and Community Unity.
