Horrifically, we were alerted on Monday via text and TV interruption of a young girl who was missing and endangered. As of right now, she has not been found. I think most of us, if we had the opportunity, would volunteer our time to search for her. It is my prayer that she will be found alive and safe by the time you read this.
God has a bunch of “missing kids” who are “lost and endangered.” In fact, we were once far away from Jesus too. Please keep your eye out and your heart open to reach out for these precious people. It is my prayer that you and I will join in the search with hearts full of love, sharing the good news of Jesus’ rescue.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost (Luke 19:10).
Here’s your invitation to worship in person or online at 9:00 or 10:30am! Feel free to pass it along.
Sharing Christ’s victory,
CURRENT SERIES – FAMILY MATTERS
ICYMI – Last weekend, Pastor Bill continued our Family Matters series with a message about the “perfect” family. Guess what? The only way that any family is “perfect” is because of God’s mercy, given through Jesus. Click here to view this message.
Coming Up This Sunday – Pastor Bill will wrap up our Family Matters series with a message that’s all about sibling rivalries: the good, the bad, and the Biblical. Join us on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at church or online.
Call Update – On Wednesday, the Leadership Team called Pastor Dustin Blumer of Amazing Love (Frankfort, IL) to be our associate pastor.

Sessions will meet in the Elementary classroom at the Ministry Center from 6:30-7:30pm every Wednesday in October.

Professor Forrest “Frosty” Bivens will lead this interactive study. No RSVP needed.
