HELP WITH GUTTER CLEANING We have been asked to help with a couple of gutter cleaning projects. Weather permitting, we are looking at the weekend of October 6 & 7. If you can help, please contact the church office, 590-0306, or Rich Gegg, 217-621-4288 or

THRIVENT As we pray for those who have been affected by Hurricane Florence, Thrivent – a membership organization of Christians – is mobilizing its financial resources and members to help those in need. Thrivent members and others who want to help with the recovery efforts are encouraged to visit to learn more about our organization’s commitment to match individual personal donations and other ways in which people can help.

VOLUNTEERS Our worship service volunteers are always appreciated and we are always looking for more people to help during the services. If you are interested in helping out, please prayfully consider how you would like to help and fill out a volunteer sign-up sheet out in the narthex and put it on the desk in the office for Melissa. Thank you!

HOSTING SOME GOOD IDEAS? Our church is seeking a few hosts or hostesses to lend your skills. We have been fortunate enough to enjoy various activities and social events over the past few years many coordinated by the Fellowship Committee. And this committee might just be the place for you to continue and create new fellowship gathering during the coming year. If you are interested, please contact Pastor Oman or Lisa Schwarzentraub. A planning meeting will be scheduled later this year to plan for 2019.

CARDS FOR EDDY please bring your cards for Eddy in envelopes addressed to “Eddy” on the outside and only sign your first names inside. Please put cards in basket on back table as you exit sanctuary. Thank you!
