Annual Congregational Meeting

Annual report will be available for pick up at church from after January 23rd. If you’re not able to pick up, call the church office at 815-369-5552 and one can be mailed to you.

Worship Volunteers Needed!
We are updating our list of those who can help with Sunday worship. The Church Council has decided that instead of having separate ushers for greeters and communion, that the Worship Ushers could assist with communion as well as be greeters,and the Lector and Worship Assistant could be the same person. Livestream Operator will be one person, PowerPoint Operator will be one person, and the Elevator Operator can be done by one person above the age of 18. This will require 6 volunteers weekly. We will help you learn how to do each task. If you are available to help, contact the church office with the your name, phone number and the area you are willing to volunteer. There is also a sign up sheet on the bulletin board by the Fellowship Hall. Thank you very much. We appreciate all your help!
