Shelby Christian Church brings service to theatre

Minister Tim Heim of the Shelby Christian Church invited everyone to come to the Bel-Air Theater on Sunday morning, Mother’s Day, for a special service. People stayed in their vehicles and a flatbed truck was pulled up in front for a platform. An entire church service was led from that platform, with people honking their horns in reply to the songs or message.

Not being able to attend school has been hard on the students and the teachers alike. They enjoy seeing each other every day, and this was Ava’s way to show her teacher how much she truly appreciated her.
