The church of Sebewaing will host the evening cruise


Son’s Life Missionary Church hopes its Circle Cruise Night Friday party will be a great time to get to know other community and church members.

Beginning at 6 p.m., attendees will be allowed to drive their cars and see friends, family, and other members of the church and community.

“It’s a good thing to bring together a large part of the community,” said church administrative assistant Jodi Smith.

A well-known event in Sebewaing, the circular cruise dates back to the 80s. It was first called “Idiot Circle”, but the name was changed due to the controversy surrounding it. It was first held at the annual Sugar Festival in June, but was changed when Son’s Life Missionary Church took over. This is the second consecutive year that he has been welcomed by the local church.

“At the time, it was popular among high school kids,” Smith said. “They would start at the fire station and go through the cruise circle, where some of them were even doing burnouts.”

The case will start in the parking lot of the church, because then the cruisers can go through the fire station and back. It will be a great opportunity to see other people’s cars, including some of the old classic vehicles.

“We wanted a summer event, so we thought that was the best thing to do,” Smith said.

Local businesses, including Cornerstone Venture and the local cafe, will stay open later than usual to offer cruise passengers a few more options to choose from for buying ice cream and other goodies. The church will also provide free hot dogs and lemonade.

“We’re talking with a few other businesses to see if they’ll stay open later,” Smith said. “But we are happy to have Cornerstone and others on board.”

If you wish to attend, the church asks participants to confirm their presence via their Facebook page, so that they know how much food they will have to prepare.

“Even if you’re not a member here at the church, come and enjoy it,” Smith said. “It will be a great time and a great reunion for everyone to enjoy.”
