The congregation will celebrate “Rally Day” on Sunday, September 8. The morning begins with the 10:00 am worship service, which will include “water communion” – where individuals contribute samples of water from their summer travels to a communal basin symbolizing the unity of the congregation. Part way through the service the children go to Kids’ Club, their Sunday School program. All children are welcome and nursery care is available for the youngest little ones.
Immediately following the service, an all-church indoor picnic will be held. Members and friends are asked to bring a dish to share: meat, salad, dessert – or whatever, and their own table service. The Board of Membership and Fellowship is coordinating the meal and will provide beverages. After the meal, the Board of Religious Education will host games and activities for all ages – including a special giant Jenga which many adults find irresistible!
Please notify the church office (815-895-2706) if you plan to attend so we can provide enough seating for everyone. We hope to see you there.
