Help the Grand Valley Christian Church in Parachute celebrate its 110th anniversary and raise money for the historic church restoration project.

The fun begins at 7 p.m. July 5 with an old-fashioned tent revival featuring John Doden, evangelist and singer with Walt Smith on the keyboard. Continuing at 1 p.m. July 6 is a box lunch social. Kenny Mahaney will auction box lunches, with proceeds going for the historic church restoration. Bring your specially decorated box lunch and see if your sweetheart bids enough to enjoy the special picnic with you.

Fun continues with “Pucker Up Pastors for Pigs.” The local church ministers are accepting donations. The pastor with the most money in his jug will win the privilege of kissing a cute little piggy.

More details about the event will be included in next week’s Faith section in the Post Independent.
