Ansil Harpold of ARM (American Rehabilitation Ministries) Prison Outreach of Joplin, Mo., will do a presentation about the prison outreach at 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, at the First Church of Christ, 1224 Dogwood Ridge Road, Wheelersburg. Shortly after ARM was founded in 1973, Harpold and his men’s trio, the New Creations, joined the mission. They traveled extensively to churches and prisons representing the work, preaching the gospel, and literally put ARM “on the map.”

Game night will start at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at the church’s annex. Bring a favorite game and snack and join in the fellowship.

Items being collected for Operation Christmas Child for October includes toothpaste, combs, hairbows, rulers, big erasers, toys for boys, stuffed animals and individually wrapped candy.

For more information about these events or the church, call the church office at 740-574-5031 or Randy Wickham, minister, at 740-574-1913.
