MIDWEEK BIBLE STUDY ~ The Midweek Bible Study begins again this Wednesday, 10/10, 9:30-10:30 a.m. We’ll study “Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” Genesis 12-35. All are welcome to come, study with each other and the pastor, ask questions, and be strengthened and encourage by the Word of God.

SPECIAL ICE MAKER OFFERING ~ There is a special envelope in your mailbox for the purpose of raising funds for an ice maker. The cost is approximately $2,000 and we will need to raise the funds before the item will be purchased.

SPECIAL CEF INVESTMENT RATE ~ Because our congregation obtained building project financing through the Central Illinois District Church Extension Fund (CID-CEF), the CID-CEF is offering a special interest rate of 1.5% for a 2-year investment certificate ($500 minimum) to our congregation and her members. Please contact Chris Anderson or Susan Short at 217-793-1802 or cef@cidlcms.org for this special interest rate or other investment options.
