COVID Considerations - Cases of COVID have increased in central Illinois and is present in our central Illinois churches. Masks are encouraged, especially during singing. Fellowship time between services should be done outside as much as possible. If you have COVID, please contact Sis. Megan Hode. She will keep your name confidential, but we need to know the extent of COVID cases in our church as we make plans for our next phase of reopening. If you are tested for COVID-19, the Health department will never leave a recording telling someone they are positive. They will only call and speak directly.
2020 Elder and Brotherhood Conference - The elders express their appreciation for your prayers and support. God was faithful. Bro. Frank plans to provide a summary of the conference later in August.
