LANSING, Ill. (July 24, 2019) – On Friday, July 19, Lansing’s Oak Glen United Reformed Church hosted its annual Burger Bash and Car Show from 5:00–7:00pm.
Marilou Ooms, who is part of the Evangelism Committee at the church, said, “We want to use this as an outreach effort to the Lansing community.” This year Oak Glen sent out invitations to those in the community who live within a mile of the church. The event drew in roughly 200 people.
The event allows church and community members to look at cars as well as enjoy a meal consisting of burgers, bratwurst, and more.
Dexter Bland, community member, said, “This is the first time I’ve come to this event. I was interested in the car show, so I decided to bring my wife and my daughter along.”
Kristine Espitia, another community member, said, “My son and I were looking at cars when a member of the church approached us and started talking about different groups at the church which interested me.”
Oak Glen United Reformed Church is located at 2244 Indiana Avenue in Lansing, Illinois. More information is available by calling 708-474-9576.
