The last service at the Zion Bible Church will be at 10 am, on Sunday, May 25th. Following the service, a reception will be held at the Market Square Hotel. All who wish to reserve a spot must respond by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), no later than May 16. After merging with Northbridge Church, they will continue to meet at the Antioch High School until hopefully breaking ground for a new church building on 173, just west of 94. Mike Lambert, who is also Reg. Vice President for Primerica, in Winthrop Harbor, was very optimistic.
In other related news, the YMCA closed its doors over a year ago to the disap-pointment of many people. It was forced to close because of a lack of memberships, and also because they were millions of dollars in debt. Questions on who will acquire the building have been put to rest. The News Sun has reported that The Church of Joy, located on the corner of Elisha and 27th, has acquired the former YMCA building, located on Western Avenue.
