  • Thirteen years ago, a youth center for kids to gather was started to provide a safe place for kids to meet. Phyllis Rame had  begun the search for citizens interested enough in the youth of Vandalia and surrounding area to help get the project off the ground and rolling.

  • The third Vandalia Ministerial Alliance Lenten Luncheon was hosted by Northside Christian Church last Wednesday, and the faithful Lenten Luncheon followers gathered in the fellowship room to sit at the tables decorated with colorful spring nosegays and bearing Northside’s luncheon trademarks, plates of homemade cookies already placed at intervals within each of all.

  • The Vandalia Ministerial Alliance’s first Lenten Luncheon of the year was held at First Christian Church in Vandalia, which opened the doors to a faithful gathering that filled the fellowship room to enjoy fellowship, a good lunch prepared by the ladies of the church and an inspiring program.
