Go out into the world in peace, have courage, hold onto what is good. Return no one evil for evil. Strengthen the fainthearted, support the weak, help the suffering. Honor all people, because all people are God's people. Love and serve the Lord, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Grace and the peace of God through Jesus Christ be with you.
In light of recent concerns about the COVID-19 virus in our community and throughout the state and nation, we want you to know that church leaders and staff are taking every precaution to keep our church family healthy. In accordance with Governor Pritzker’s announcement, and recommendations from our Bishop Beard, we are suspending all church worship services until further notice. It is in the best interest for our community and especially our healthcare workers and system to follow CDC recommendation to cancel or postpone large gathering events as a means of flattening the pandemic’s curve.
We continue to improve and upgrade our online presence and communications. A video of our weekly worship and Wednesday prayer are offered online each week. Please check out our weekly online worship opportunities and our Facebook page.
I encourage you to continue to be good Christians and neighbors. Pray and ask God where you can be used. Perhaps God may encourage you to reach out to others in creative ways.
If we know of people who have self-quarantined themselves, because they are at risk or because they have been told to do so, we need to offer prayers and support. We will also publish a list of people who would enjoy a card or phone call.
The coronavirus is serious. It is also an opportunity to show God’s love and share Jesus with others. The best way is to do this is together.
Pastor Bill Adams
In-person services are currently suspended
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
