2015 November 22 Announcements

As some of you may know, foster parent training classes were held at the Fellowship Hall in September and October. 8 couples completed the training including 5 couples from the Goodfield congregation and one couple each from the Eureka and Congerville congregations. The couples are now in various stages of the licensing process.  On that note, earlier this week, a baby was placed with Bo. Wade and Sis. Hallie Wettstein's family. Please be prayerful and supportive of them as they begin this journey.

The double church shower for Bro. Will & Sis. Jamie and Pete & Jaycee has been rescheduled for Tuesday evening, November 24. It will be a walk-through from 7-8:30. Please bring $5, a grocery item, and a recipe for each couple. Questions, see Sisters Pat Plattner or Dort Leman.

The young group women’s Bible study will be this Tuesday at Bro. Jaye and Sis. Peg Rinkenberger’s home at 7:30pm instead of 7.  The young men’s Bible study will be at Bro. Dan and Sis. Heidi Schumacher’s home at the normal time of 7pm.

All church Christmas caroling will be Friday, December 4th at 6pm.  Please meet in the dining room.  Sign-up sheets are at the message center.  Please see Sisters Cassie Knepp or Ashley Schieler with questions.

Sis. Joyce Hohulin’s ankle surgery went well and she would like to thank all of you for your prayers.

Note from Bro. Herman and Sis Sarah,
We sincerely appreciate everyone’s prayers as we plan to meet with the oncologist on Monday (11/23) and get the results of a recent scan to see how chemo treatments have been working. Please pray for good results and that we can graciously accept what the Lord has in plan going forward. We sincerely appreciate our church family very much and cannot thank you enough for everything that's been done for us.

We will be having Thanksgiving services this Thursday at 10am. This will cancel our regular Wednesday evening service.

We will be having testimonies for Emily Thompson Saturday evening at 7pm and then Lord willing her baptism on Sunday. It is group 2’s turn to help with the snack after the baptism.  There is a sign-up sheet at the message center. Please see Sis. Shelley Rokey if you have any questions.

We rejoice with Brett & Ellie Gramm as they were blessed with a baby boy named Beckett Charles on November 3rd.

We also rejoice with Bro. Austin & Sis. Rachel McClure as they were blessed with a baby girl named Emrie Kay on November 20th.
