11/14/21 Announcements

November’s Collection-  Gateway Woods 

 Sunday 11/14

  • 2nd Service - Matthew 14-18

    • The Narrative -  John the Baptist dies. Jesus continues doing miracles including the feeding of the 5,000 and the 4,000 which evokes memories of Moses feeding the Isrealites in the wilderness. Jesus’ popularity grows among the common people and his opposition increases among the religious leaders.  Jesus begins explaining about how he must suffer and die, but it is beyond his disciples' understanding. 

    • The 4th Sermon - Terms of Discipleship - You must become like a child to enter the kingdom.  His kingdom is based on humility and forgiveness. 

  • ACYF Evening in Fairbury at 6:00pm All are welcome to join for song worship. Students will be meeting at the Pizza Place at 4:00 for supper before they leave.

  • Nominations for Church Trustee, Fellowship Hall Trustee, Nursing Home Board and Nominating Committee Due Today-  Please turn in potential candidates to the Nominating Committee. We plan to inform the church of the candidates the week of the 22nd in preparation for the Business Meeting on 12/1.
