Tomorrow is the Marriage Retreat. It runs from 9:00 to Noon. We have had a great sign up for this event. However, if you’d like to join us, just come to church tomorrow morning. There is no cost for this event.
We will be sharing communion on Sunday. We will be taking flu precautions so we will have individual cups rather than a common cup. We will also be in our “hand shakes or elbow bumps” mode for the morning.
Bible Study is coming on Wednesday, January 17th at 6:30 p.m. in the Fireplace Room. Come join the discussion!
The Women’s Retreat is coming on January 26th and 27th. Again, we have had a great sign up but would still be happy to add a few folks if you are interested. The deadline for registration is January 15th.
We have our Annual Congregational Meeting coming up after worship on January 29th. This is going to be a total celebration of our life together! Seriously…this is a Sunday that you are not going to want to miss… The Annual Reports will be out soon.
Sunday, January 28th is also our PADS Sunday, which seems completely appropriate. The sign up lists are up for food preparation and for serving.
Don’t forget that whenever we celebrate communion, we collect food for the COOL Food Pantry in Waukegan. Just bring the non-perishable food items to church with you and put them near the communion table. This is our effort to make the connection between how God feeds us and calls us to feed one another.

We Need Your Old Shoes!
The gift of shoes helps protect children and adults from life-threatening illnesses. Many schools require uniform footwear- the fit of shoes allows children to attend school.
Please make sure your donations are gently worn, clean and can withstand heavy wear. New shoes are also welcome. All sizes accepted.
Athletic, gym and walking type shoes are preferred.
Donations can be dropped off in the collection boxes at the front and back of the church. Collection ends: Saturday, April 21, 2018 @ 10AM
