29 Aug 555 Attend Friends and Family Day at Hillsdale UB
The Hillsdale UB Church in Hillsdale, Mich. (known locally as the “HUB”), held its 14th annual Friends and Family Day at Michindoh Conference Center on Sunday, August 26. With the exception of Easter, no other HUB worship service brings in more guests than the last Sunday of August.
Music was provided by the Vanderveen Family. Gary Vanderveen is a United Brethren pastor in Florida. Les Smith, HUB senior pastor, appeared as “Peter” and dramatized I Peter. He had just finished a summer preaching series from the same book.
There was a combined attendance of 555 at the indoor (held earlier at the church) and outdoor (at Michindoh’s amphitheatre) services. Over 450 people were served at the free picnic. Afterwards, a long line formed at Michindoh’s waterslide all afternoon.
