Weekly Announcements

From the February 17, 2019 Bulletin


Childcare – We have preschool care during the worship services for preschoolers ages 0-5 in our nursery area (rooms 105-106.)  Children grades K-4 will stay with their parents during the song service, then they are dismissed to children’s church before the message.  You must pick up your child from children’s church after the service in Room 207.


Centrifuge Youth Fundraiser - Please feel free to pick an envelope off the board in the entry hallway that has an amount already written on it.  If you would please place that amount in the white envelope and put it in the offering, all that money will go towards our youth Centrifuge account.  We will be collecting until the envelopes are all gone, or at least until May.  Thank you for all of your support and generous donations!


Pie & Cake Auction - We will be having our Pie/Cake Auction today after the morning service and lunch will be provided.  Please come support our youth group and help raise money for Centrifuge.


Keenagers – The seniors will meet this Thursday, February 21 at 1:00 pm in the fellowship hall.  Please bring a sack lunch.  Drinks and desserts will be provided.  Anyone age 55 and up is welcome to attend.  We are having a very special guest speaker join us.  You don’t want to miss it!


Youth Skating – The youth will be going to the Edwardsville YMCA to roller skate this Friday, February 22.  We will meet at 5:30 at the church and return around 10:30.  You will need a permission slip for this trip.  Please let Donna or Sue know by Wednesday, February 20 if you plan to attend.


Pray for Our Men – Please be in prayer for the men of the church that will be going to the RPM Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference this Saturday.


“Let All You Do Be Done in Love”

1 Corinthians 16:14

Cancellation of Sunday Morning Services – In the winter months in the case of extremely bad weather, we may cancel Sunday Services.  Look on the St. Louis TV channels 2, 4, or 5 on Sunday mornings.  If the weather is bad but not extreme, we may have “Worship Service Only”.  On those Sundays, we will have no Sunday School, no nursery, and no Children’s Church so that no one has to feel they must come to serve.  We will have a worship service for all ages together for those who want to come even in the bad weather at 10:45.


Cancellation of Wednesday Night Activities – In the winter months, if the Wood River School District cancels school on a Wednesday due to weather, we will not have children, preschool, or youth activities on that Wednesday night.  The adult study group may still meet even if children activities are cancelled.  Call the leader to see.



Thank You for Serving in Worship Today!
