The EBIC Fair Parking tradition continues...be part of working together, greeting the community, assisting those in need, praying for God's hand in the workings of the Fair and its participants. All of this requires participation by lots of people in the congregation. There is something for everyone to do! Sign up below. Questions can be directed to Amy Bell or David Scharf at fairparking@etownbic.org.

The parking funds we receive are given to a variety of local organizations that serve our community in the name of Jesus. In 2017, proceeds were given to:

  • Cornerstone Youth Center
  • ECHOS
  • Hope Within Ministries
  • House of David
  • Naaman Center
  • United Churches of the Elizabethtown Area
