• The congregation at West Line Christian Church is so excited about the progress of the new building project. The basement has been poured. We are hopeful that this project will get finished. The annual Ice-Cream Social is this Sunday, Aug. 25. There will be an added attraction this year, a quilt show inside the church. If you have a quilt that you would like to sell or show, bring it on Sunday with you to the ice-cream social. I will have cards for you to fill out your information about your quilt. Bring your lawn chairs, also. Be ready for some good ol time gospel music, ice cream and visiting.
