“Though you have not seen him, you love him;  and even though you do not see him now, 
you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,  for you are receiving the end 
result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” – 1 Peter 1:8-9
 
**************************************************************************************
Good afternoon,
 
Today – it actually feels like spring…Maybe even almost summer as it is in the 70 degree range…. Hopefully all of you will get a chance to enjoy it today or tomorrow – as we know this is Illinois and the weather is always subject to change-(which I believe it probably will by next week). – Although presently, I am sure we are all appreciating the warm up and beautiful sunshine….
 
A few notes: 
 
For those on the Church Council, don’t forget there is a meeting tonight at 7:00 p.m. 
 
If you have ordered Little Caesar’s Pizza kits or any of their other items, don’t forget that the pick-up day for those will be next Thursday, April 19 @ 5:30 pm. 
 
– FYI: The last day of K-5 Youth will be May 9th.

AUMC Weekly Schedule & Announcements (Week of April 8)

“You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.’” – Acts 2:28

———————————————————————————————————

Good afternoon

We have sunshine today! ….

 It seems sunshine has been hard to come by this past week – so it has been nice to see it out. 

After Easter, some things have slowed down a little bit here at the church this week, but there

have been folks busy outside working on our ramp… On Tuesday, the entire ramp was torn out

and today, concrete has been poured… Pretty soon, we will have a new ramp!

Next week’s schedule is below along with a few announcements. If you want to order some pizza, 

cookies or bread stick kits from Little Caesars, be sure to call the office (543-3159) or get in 

touch with a youth member. Orders are due Wednesday, April 11th.  There also is a church

council meeting a week from today on April 12 at 7:00 pm.

Despite the cooler temperatures that are in the forecast – I hope that everyone

still has a good weekend…

 

See you Sunday!

Community Meals News update

In 2017, Wednesday night Community Meals served about 12,039 meals!…

The volunteers are wonderful and have helped serve so many who were hungry…What amazing people!



News from God’s Closet: April 2018

 

Can you believe April is about here?! We have received many large donations this past month. We still are welcoming summer clothing for children. I have been putting winter clothing in storage boxes to make room for spring and summer items.

 

There is still a need for baby items such as diapers, bedding, blankets and clothing for birth to age 2 or 3 for both boys and girls.

 

Thank you to all of those who have donated kitchen items. They have been received with pleasure!

Also, thank you to Dr. & Connie Winfield for the dental supplies.

 
I wish everyone a happy Easter with God’s blessing!
 
 
In His Service, 
Iris Ramsey
