We really appreciated your prayers for the Elder conference in Smithville this past week.  We were blessed with a meeting where there was much respect and confidence in each other. We will plan to give a full update on the conference and the forums this winter next Sunday afternoon.

Wendy Falk at the Eureka AC Home has been asked to help get the word out for Jim Ringger and the Independent Living Unit Residents who help Jim make Rag Rugs. Jim is hoping to train 1 or 2 individuals on the Rug Loom. This wonderful group of individuals faithfully work on making rag rugs almost on a daily basis. The proceeds from the sale of these rugs benefit this Home and many rag rugs are donated to Auction’s/ Fundraisers around the area to support other Nursing Homes and worthy causes. Both men and women would make great help to Jim and his faithful team of rug makers.   Any assistance in reaching potential volunteers interested in helping with this need would be greatly appreciated.   If you would like to help, contact Wendy Falk at (309) 467-2311 ext. 149

Thank you note from Sis. Nancy & Bro. Delton Whitaker:

Thank you for the beautiful floral arrangement we received from our Goodfield church family for the passing of our mom, Esther Musselman.  We are grateful for all the love, support and sympathy extended to us during this difficult time.  We love you all.

We rejoice with Ed Kennedy and Alice Nohl as they have turned their life over to the Lord in repentance. May they feel God’s nearness and grace and the prayers of our church family. We are so thankful that God is still patient and calling souls to repentance and conversion.

We rejoice with Lois Zimmerman (daughter of Bro. Mike & Sis. Gretchen) as she was blessed with a baby boy, Grayson Oliver born on January 23rd.

We rejoice with Bro. Matt & Sis. Hannah Grimm as they were blessed with a baby girl, Adelaide Mae born on March 10th.
