In September, NGMC participates in the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale by running the Pie Booth each year in the Quilt Auction building at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds. Volunteers from NG as well as many other churches in our region donate homemade pies which are then sold with ice cream during Friday night and Saturday of the Relief Sale. This year's Relief Sale is scheduled for September 23-24, 2022.
In December we hold a Christmas Drama at the church featuring children from the congregation and the community as they sing and act out a drama related to or about the birth of Jesus. Everyone is invited to come see the pageant and enjoy refreshments with us afterward.
