When Columbus native Josh Burnett fell away from his Christian faith several years ago, friends at The Ridge church in Columbus helped him rediscover his spiritual beliefs.
And now Burnett and his wife, Katie, said they feel God wants them to launch a similar, contemporary church in Washington, Ill.
To help with the cost of the effort, the couple will host the first Josh and Katie Burnett Golf Outing on Sept. 13 at Shadowood Golf Course in Seymour.
Proceeds will help fund the pair’s launch residency from January 2015 to June 2016 at Connect Church. Registration and check-in begins at 8 a.m. The official shotgun start tee-off will be at 9 a.m.
After the first 18 teams sign up, the event will be considered full. The cost per person is $75 and includes 18 holes of golf with a cart; complimentary breakfast and lunch; closest-to-the-pin, longest drive and longest putt prizes; and a $500 prize to the winning team.
Information and registration: Josh Burnett at 812-374-9394 or firstname.lastname@example.org
