Announcements and Weekly Events

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.


Children’s Worship Bulletins – There are Children’s Worship Bulletins available on the rail by the organ each Sunday with activities to do during worship.  There are separate ones for ages 3-6 and ages 7-12.  Pick one up for your child.


Missions Spectacular – On Saturday, June 2, our church will be hosting the IBSA sponsored Missions Spectacular event.  All projects will be in the Wood River/East Alton area.  Please be praying for our planning team as they plan for hosting this event. 


Mission Trip Registration – If you are planning to go on the church mission trip to Wellington, CO on July 21-28, 2018.  You will need to turn in your registration form and $65 to the pastor by March 19.  Registration Forms are on the table in the foyer.

Youth Pie & Cake Auction – The youth would like to invite you to a Pie & Cake Auction on Sunday, March 25th following the morning worship service.  Sandwiches and chips will be served.  Please bring your desserts to the fellowship hall before the service.  Thank you again for your support!


Adult Choir - Easter is such a glorious time to share with members and visitors the message of Christ.  During March, the choir will be working on a couple of songs in preparation for our Easter Sunday celebration.  Each Wednesday at 8:05 pm, we will meet in the choir room to work on "What We Believe".  You are welcome to join us as we rehearse and prepare our own hearts to share Christ on Easter, April 1. See Jan Timmins if you have any questions.  


Invite Family and Friends – At Easter unchurched people are more open to spiritual things and many will attend church on Easter when they do not attend any other time.  Let’s take advantage of this and invite people to our Easter Services.  We have fliers in the foyers you can use to invite neighbors and friends.  You may also invite their children to our Easter Egg Hunt after the morning service.  The egg hunt will be held on the church lawn.


Thank You for Serving in Worship Today!
