On Sunday, May 3rd, various leaders from the Elder board and Council met via Zoom. During the meeting it was agreed that information to keep members in the loop during this crisis, would be via the internet, mailings and possibly an all member Zoom meeting. For now it will be a letter. You will be notified if anything changes.
It was great to find out that throughout this crisis, giving remains steadfast and stable. Although we aren’t where we would like to have been when we initially sold the Central Site, we are in a pretty good spot compared to other organizations.
We ask you to continue praying for all of our members. Especially, the family of Martin Hermeling who passed away last week. May the resurrection of Jesus Christ bring hope, comfort and peace to all who grieve. Also, pray for all who are struggling during this crisis including those who are infected, the people on the front lines, those who lost their jobs and those who are unable to attend the private communion services. Also, our members who were recently hospitalized: Shirley Ahrens, Ruth Hintz and Ruby Dettman.
Just a reminder…private family communion is available on Sundays. Just call Sue at 815-979-3952 so reserve a spot!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
Wait for the Lord,
