Sign-up sheet on clipboard outside of Fellowship Hall, cost is $20.00 per person. In an emergency, being able to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can help save a life. CPR is an emergency procedure that consists of chest compressions and often assisted ventilation to maintain the circulation of oxygenated blood if an individual’s heart or breathing stops. Immediately starting CPR and carrying it out until trained medical staff arrives can substantially increase an individual’s chances of survival and improve their overall out come.

Email Scam: Not From Bishop Fidlar
To Members of the Northern Illinois Synod,
Please ignore email messages you may receive that says it is from Bishop Stacie Fidlar asking for you to purchase gift cards or to contact her as she needs you to complete a task. THIS IS A SCAM. Bishop Fidlar will never ask you to purchase gift cards or to ask you to contact her to complete a task.
