Eclipse Viewing Party

Thank you for joining us for the 2024 eclipse. Check our local church events calendar for more upcoming events and ways to get involved.

Wondering where to watch the 2024 eclipse in Indiana? Help support our youth group's mission trip to Guatemala with Filter of Hope and have a great eclipse-viewing experience!

As the sun, moon, and earth align on April 8, 2024, we'll experience epic and unforgettable total darkness. Central Indiana is ranked one of the best spots to see the total eclipse and Fishers, Indiana is in the direct path with one of the longest lengths of total darkness. Our city is expecting thousands of visitors.

Reserve your spot at Grace Fishers Church. Your purchase of a parking space and/or boxed lunches for viewing will go to support our Filter of Hope Student Mission Trip and help bring clean water to people in need in Guatemala.
