Church to restore tradition

November 11, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — The aged assertion, “When it rains, it pours,” seemed to be an understatement this past spring and summer for Believers’ Bible Fellowship, 316 N. Main St., Churubusco.

Church members soon realized that the restitution was beyond their capabilities.
