IMG 3612
Sunday, November 9th, 1:00-4:00 pm these awesome kids put together these kits to help kids in need. “Kits for Kids” is a project that was started to help provide for the needs of foster children in our county. Throughout the month of October the congregation collected items such as hygiene products, small toys, books, school supplies,
and shoebox-sized plastic containers. Thank you to everyone who helped with this project.


Did you know that a Devotion is just a click or a dial away? You can get a Daily Devotion by clicking on the link below, or you can call the Church at 815-369-4411 to have one read to you on the phone. Either way,  you are connecting with God and getting a Spiritual Uplift for the day.
