Additional information is on the bulletin board or you can contact Sis. Barb Schwind.
Your Gifts in His Body - There are many blessings that we receive by being a part of our church family. Some of those blessings are the opportunities we have to support each other both in the good times and difficult times of life. Recently an effort has begun to connect those in our church that could benefit from the support of their church family with those who want to provide that support. The title of this new endeavor is "Your Gifts in His Body". In a larger church sometimes needs can be overlooked even though there are many willing people who want to be involved. A committee has been developed to discuss how we can better serve one another in the body of Christ. As a way to begin, we will have a Spiritual Gifts Bible Study on Wed. evening 9/12 and once again take the Spiritual Gifts survey. The results of this survey will be used to identify how individuals can help as needs arise within the church. If you have a need that you would like assistance with from within our church please contact Sis. Marjorie Bertschi at 309-253-0151 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about this new effort you can contact Bro. Matt Feucht.
