We would like to give a special thanks to all who helped with the Church housecleaning.  Please check the lost and found items in the ladies’ coat room to see if anything is yours.

We will open the collection boxes this month for our local Charity fund. Many lives are affected by your giving to this fund. If you know of anyone in need please see one of the Charity fund committee members: They are Bro. Nathan and Sis. Laura Wiegand, Bro. Chris and Sis. Liz Schmidgall and Bro. Duane and Sis. Vermeda Friedinger.

We will be having our adult Friends Bible study at the Fellowship Hall each Sunday in April except for Easter Sunday starting at 10am. Bro. Jedd Rocke will be teaching the class. Please feel free to invite a friend or neighbor.

There will be ACTIVE this Wednesday.

We will be having singing at the Eureka Home this Saturday at 6:45. Everyone is welcome to come.

Friday, April 14th we will have Good Friday services at 7:00 followed by our Communion.  Bro. Lynn Stieglitz from Leo, IN plans to be with us.  There will be babysitting available during communion services on Good Friday. Please sign your child up at the information center by Wednesday, April 5. If you would be willing to babysit, there is also a sign-up sheet available for that.

We'd like to provide the opportunity for anyone who would like to receive church call system messages as a text on their cell phone rather than voice messages. If you already receive call system voice messages on your cell phone you simply need to text the word “Alert” to 22-300 from your phone. This gives our system permission to text you. If you would like to add your cell phone to our system, please let Sis. Roxy Blunier know. If you prefer voice messages rather than texts you do not need to do anything. Please see Sis. Roxy if you have any questions.

The Heart House Is Having their annual Spaghetti Supper and Bake sale Thursday, April 6th. Goodfield church has been asked to donate bars. If you haven't already, please consider signing up to help. Your donation will need to be dropped off by noon on the 6th at the Heart House. If you have any questions please check the information center or contact Sis. Gretchen Zimmerman 309-258-3596. Thank you for all you do to support this worthy cause! And don't forget to Join them for supper! They are serving from 3:30 til 7:30

Bro. Nate Sauder received strong support for being our next assistant Sunday school superintendent.  Thanks to all of you for diligently teaching our children.  You are loved  and appreciated.

There are job posting on the AC Central app. Along with searchable hymns and all Silver Lining articles. Currently only the Zion's Harp hymns are there but eventually all of our hymn book hymns will be there.

The center serving aisle between the dining room tables is becoming more and more congested, interfering with the table servers' activities. Please refrain from using the center aisle while lunch is being served. The Sunday school children (pre-school through 5th grade) who assemble in the east room after class will be dismissed to the west stairs to help relieve congestion in the kitchen and center serving aisle. If you have any questions please see one of the trustees.

Please be prayerful for Sis. Mary Ellen Wiegand as she has knee replacement surgery today (Monday).

We rejoice with Bro. Jared & Sis. Angie Schieber as they were blessed with a baby girl named Ella Joy on March 28th.

We also rejoice with Bro. Nate & Sis. Abby Bauman as they were blessed with a baby girl named Tinley Sue on March  30th.
