Polly Tallos, Director of Christian Education and Youth at North Eaton Christian Church. Would like to invite you to an “all you can eat” Spaghetti Dinner this Saturday October 20th from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Church in Eaton Township.

The proceeds will help fund the group's annual mission trip to repair and paint the homes of low-income, elderly or disabled residents. This will be the 8th Mission Trip for the High School Youth Group. The Junior High Youth Group supports a treatment center in Cleveland that works with severally abused boys.

Tallos says the group spends a week with about 400 other youth from all over the United States, and sometimes Canada, from various Christian denominations. “The youth and adults are put into groups of six, then they are given a resident to help. Projects can include building new porches or wheelchair ramps, installing/repairing drywall, and all manner of painting. In general, they weatherize and repair the homes of elderly and or underprivileged people. The most important job the kids have that week is to act out their Faith by helping others without any thought of personal gain. The ironic thing is that the youth go home with more rewards than the residents they took the time to help.”

The group will spend the week sleeping on the floor of a local school using the locker room showers. “Two of the girls that went last year made the comment "Boy do I appreciate my own bed and shower!"

Tickets for the all-you-can-eat (on site) meal are $7 for adults and $5 for children ages 5-10. Take-outs are also available. The meal includes spaghetti, meatballs, salad bar, desserts, and beverages. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

North Eaton Christian Church is located at the corner of Rt. 82 and Rt. 83 next to the Eaton Township Fire Department.

If you have any questions please call the church office at 440-748-2230.
