Illinois Phase 3 – What this means for our church

May 29, 2020, Governor Pritzker lifted the “Stay at Home” executive order and announced that Illinois had moved into Phase 3. With this new phase, churches can have groups of up to 10 people in their building and hold outdoor or drive in worship services. For now, we continue to hold Worship via Facebook Live. Online Worship is on Sunday at  9:00 am. We still continue to pray together as a congregation at 5:30 pm on Sundays.  Pastor Bruce also continues to be online via Facebook Live in the evenings at 9:30 pm. 
Now that we are in Phase 3, our groups such as Crafty Crafters, Boy Scouts and Bee-Keeprs can return to our building to meet. We will continue to bring updates concerning our worship services.

Community Meals suspended for the next two weeks


Due to the corona virus making its appearance in our town, it is with heavy hearts that we feel we must suspend serving Wednesday Community Meals for the next two weeks. This decision has not been taken lightly, but with much prayer and concern for all our friends we have served over the years. We feel that we are unable to assure non-contact among our diners, even when we are only serving take-out, and our staff. Although this gives us great sorrow, we feel it is the only responsible course of action at this time. After two weeks, we, like so many others, will be reevaluating conditions, always with the goal of starting again as soon as it is safe to do so.
