2019 November 3 Announcements

Our monthly collection is for the Eureka Home. We are thankful to have a wonderful place that cares deeply for our loved ones. Please consider supporting the Home this month.

There will be ACTIVE this week.

We plan to have singing at the Eureka Home on this Saturday, November 9th. Due to extremely low turnouts we have decided to have a signup sheet each month for this. We would like to have at least 30 people to attend each week. You can sign up at the information center or online At this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0C4EA5AB2BA7FC1-eureka. It is a great opportunity for each of us, especially families with children to interact with our loved ones at the home. Please consider the blessing that you will receive for attending.

The benefit auction for Hospital Lumiere is planned for this Friday, November 8 at Five Points in Washington, Illinois.  The food court and silent auction start at 4:30.  The live auction begins at 7:00.  This annual fund-raising auction is a critical part of Hospital Lumiere’s funding and your support is appreciated.  Goodfield has been asked to provide volunteers for many tasks including Food Court, Silent Auction, and help with carrying out items.  Bible class, Young Group, and Sunday school kids over the age of 10 are needed from 4:30 on for a multitude of tasks.  Adults are welcome too!  There is a sign-up sheet at the message center or you can text Sis. Jill Wagner at 309-267-2109.  If you have questions, talk to Sis. Jill or Bro. Greg Wagner.

We are having the Adult Bible Study series at the Fellowship Hall this month each Sunday morning starting at 10am.  Bro. Nathan plans to teach.  Please feel free to invite a friend or neighbor.

We are returning to Texas in 2020 to continue helping in their recovery and Orange County, Texas will be the location of our next Winter Rebuilding Ministry.  (This is just east of the 2019 location, Hardin County.)  Homes will be built or repaired for those who have not been able to recover on their own from Hurricane Harvey.  And, as we do, we’ll be focused on sharing the love of Christ and the gospel message of salvation.  Just like last year, in order to give everyone equal chance at the limited spots available, registration will open at a set date and be first come — first served.  Registration opens at noon Central Time on November 18 on the HarvestCall website.

Effective Jan 1, 2020, the Goodfield Distribution Center is discontinuing its Furniture Distribution effort.  Effective immediately; furniture, appliances, baby items or bed and/or mattress donations are not being accepted.  Any questions should be directed to Bro. Norm Ricketts.  Also (as previously announced) there is a great need for clothing, shoes, pillows and bed sheets to send overseas.

Jonas and Savannah Wiegand are at peace with God and man and desire baptism.  Please pray for Jonas and Savana and encourage them during this most important time in their life.  If you have any words of encouragement or concerns, please contact them.  Jonas and Savannah are the children of Bro. Erik and Sis. Carrie Wiegand.  We know there is joy in heaven because of this and we are rejoicing as well.

There is going to be an Awareness Tour to Jamaica January 17-21. We will be visiting the places HarvestCall is involved with on the Island. If you are interested in more information please contact Bro. Alan or Sis. Joanne Roth.

Please pray for Bro. Roger Gerber as he plans to have major back surgery this Tuesday.  He’ll be in the hospital for a few days (up to a week depending on his recovery) and he and Sis. Trish would appreciate your prayers.

Thank you for your prayers for Tony Wirth.  The retina has reattached but vision is not yet totally clear. Please continue to pray for healing.

Local mission trip opportunity! Make a global impact in your own backyard. Lifesong for Orphans in Gridley, IL is seeking volunteers to help with the construction of a new office space and coffee roasting facility. If interested, fill out a volunteer interest form at lifesong.org/volunteer. This is not signing up to volunteer! Rather, it’s signing up to receive more information and opportunities as the project progresses.  A number of licensed contractors will be on the job, and as a volunteer, you’ll be working side-by-side with these skilled professionals.  Even if these needs don’t fit your skill set, you can still be involved! Would you pray over this project and the Lifesong for Orphans ministry? If you have any questions, please call/text Bro. Barry Kloter @ 309-657-4455.
