2016 April 24 Announcements

We had over 120 men last Tuesday evening at the purity seminar. Together with God we can have victory over sin in all aspects of our life. Thanks to each of you for caring and being there. We depend on an engaged and empowered church family working together to ward off satan and his attacks. If you were unable to attend please contact Bro. Jeff Grimm and he will get a recording to you.

We have had interest in the Crown Financial Bible Study.  Please sign up at the information center if you are interested. Also, we will need leaders who have already done Crown. If you are willing to lead a group please sign up also.
Any questions please see Bro. Kris & Sis. Heather Swords or Bro. Nate and Sis. Brittany Zeltwanger.

This Tuesday there will be a young group girls Bible Study at Bro. Jaye & Sis. Peg Rinkenberger’s home at 7.  There will also be a young group guys Bible Study the same evening at Bro. Dan & Sis. Heidi Schumacher’s home.

The Fellowship Hall Project continues to progress. Painting is complete in the remodeled portion and vinyl floors will be installed in the kitchen area this week.  Drywall will be complete in the new addition by Thursday. Volunteers are needed Friday to clean walls prior to painting. We will then cover the floors with resin paper after the walls are cleaned.  Please contact Bro. Mark Rocke at 696-9431 if you are able to help with this work.

New church directories are at the information center.  Please take as many as you would like.  Also, the food groups for funerals and baptisms can be found in three places: hanging on the bulletin board, on the church website under Resources, and printed in the back of the church directories.

Reminder:  Midwest Gospel Sing – April 30 at Five Points Washington, IL from 5:45 – 8:30  This is the annual fund raiser for the Apostolic Christian Homes for the Handicapped.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.

Apostolic Christian Home for the Handicapped - Notice of Employment Opportunity:
After over 70 years of combined service, the Apostolic Christian Home for the Handicapped will have three Resident Services Directors retiring in the coming months from various branches of the agency. The role of the Resident Services Director is to oversee the programs and procedures related to the emotional and social needs of residents as well as to direct and supervise staff in those duties. While a background in serving people with disabilities would be helpful, it is much more critical that the person embody the key character traits of an effective Resident Services Director. These include being spiritually well grounded and committed to the Christian values of the agency, an ability to advocate and enable growth in our residents, and being an effective communicator, supervisor, and mentor. Prior management experience is preferred but not required. The person must also meet the educational requirements to be a Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional. This would include but is not limited to those with a 4 year degree in education, social work, or other human service field or a 2 year degree in nursing. We ask anyone with an interest in these roles to contact the Home by Monday, May 16. We appreciate your support and prayers as we make this important transition.  A more detailed job description can be found at the message center.

Volunteers are needed at the Eureka Home for the following:
·         Taking residents outside on nice days so they can enjoy your company in the GREAT outdoors.
·         An adult to help Thursday or Friday with our two bird aviaries. Cleaning, feeding, and watering an extra time each week.
·         A few adults to serve on our Building Beautification Team
There is more information at the message center.  Please see Sis. Bonnie Gerst with any questions.

We rejoice with Bro. Royce & Sis. Sarah Schieler as they were blessed with a baby girl named Ambria Tomina on Friday, April 22nd.
