Tornado Relief Update

Thanks - The outpouring of love and support shown toward has been beyond words. Volunteers have not only given of themselves, but have provided equipment, food and most of all, prayers for those who suffered loss, as well as for those directing the recovery effort. Everyone has been touched in some way by these selfless actions given in the name of Christ. To God be the Glory!

Church Collection -  We are setting aside next Sunday as a special collection for the disaster.  The funds will be used to support those locally who have been affected as well as those in the surrounding area.  We plan to work through the World Relief program as they have a very organized approach, have many contacts, and know the needs.  You may make your checks payable to AC World Relief – Illinois Tornado Disaster Fund

World Relief - With more than one thousand homes affected, there is much work to be done.  Please see the bulletin board announcement or go to the WR website for additional information..     

Goodfield WR Distribution Center - There is a need for good used furniture, appliances, dishes and cookware. The Center will be open next Saturday (11/30) from 9-11 for donations.
