The Apostolic Christian Home of Eureka has an opening for the position of Dietary Manager.  This position is responsible for the oversight and management of dietary services to the 100+ residents served by the Home.  As a sponsor of the Home we want to support the Home by encouraging anyone who has interest in the position to contact Bro. Tom Hoffman to obtain further information.  If you know of someone with a background in food services please encourage them to explore the opportunity.
 
Thank you to so many of you who spent your morning yesterday helping with the Fellowship Hall project!  We had more than 55 volunteers show up to help remove about 115 squares of old shingles, install underlayment, and stock the roof with 800 bundles of new shingles for use in the week ahead.  The old shingles were off in about 2-1/2 hours and by noon the work was finished and we enjoyed lunch together at the church.  A special thank you to the young men and women of our Bible Class and Sunday School for their willingness to help.  What a blessing it is for us to witness the way our church family works together!  We plan to start installation of the new shingles on Monday morning and will be able to use volunteers each day until the roof is complete.  Please contact Bro. Denny Blunier or Mark Rocke if you are able to help.
 
Saturday was our regional Illinois Elder meeting. Thank you for your prayers on our behalf.
 
Bro. Don Ott has recently undergone some heart procedures at St Joseph in Bloomington. He is doing better and is resting at home. Please continue to pray for Bro. Don and Sis. Carolyn.
