Want a cheap day of Family Fun?

Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 11th and save up a few pennies. Healthy Families of Hamilton County is having everyone out to Ben and Ari's in Fishers for lunch, mini-golf, face painting, silent auction and more to raise awareness of their program in Hamilton County. It's only $5 per person and it's a great cause! Contact Crystal by email to get your tickets now before they sell out.

Healthy Families of Hamilton County is one of the local causes supported by our church body, The Well. When first planting The Well, leaders in our group met with city officials in Fishers and learned that the number one problem in our white collar community is child abuse. Not sure what we expected the answer to be, but it wasn't child abuse. Jesus had a lot to say/do/love for the 'least of these' while he walked our land. His heart breaks for children who can't help themselves out of the situations they're in. And, because of His Grace in our lives, our hearts break for them too. The Well is acting on more than just that heartache by working alongside organizations like Healthy Families to put a stop to child abuse in our community.

You and your family can be a part of that prevention by coming out to Ben and Ari's on August 11th. It's a lot of fun. We just did a similar event with Chaucie's Place and had a great time! You'll even have a chance to bid on an IndyCar Cares gift in the silent auction which includes a FREE ride in a 2-seater IndyCar!

The Little Children and Jesus
"People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.' And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them." - Mark 10:13-16
