THANK YOU TO ALL who volunteered and helped with our VBS, the children had a great time with you. To everyone who donated items needed for our crafts and snacks, your generosity was and has always been amazing. A big thank you to the person who purchased t-shirts for all the children who attended VBS. The children will remember their time here every time they wear it!

Belize Mission Trip Prayers and Support – This week our Belize Mission Team will be introduced to the congregation. We will share what we know about their service opportunities at that time. As you have noticed by the thermometer in the narthex, we are approximately $4,000 short of our needed support for the Team. This amount has been reached through a combination the personal giving of those going on the trip, previous fundraising and free will offerings. On Sunday July 26 we will be challenged to bring our freewill offering to cover these expenses. Please prayerfully consider what you might give so that those dedicating a week of their time to the mission of Christ might go with a free spirit. Also see Matthew and Josh’s offer to serve you at home for a contribution. There will be an Inboden’s Drive By Dinner for Thursday August 13. We pray God’s blessings upon this endeavor!
Need a Hand Around the House or Yard? Two of our young adults, Josh Helgeson (815) 991-0670 and Matt Warren (815) 901-7471, have volunteered to do odd jobs to raise funds for the mission trip to Belize. So clean out the garage, the basement, get your lawn mowed, your dog walked, your house cleaned or other chores. Suggested donation of $10-15 per hour.
Praise Team Needs You We have a very small group of musicians and singers that has been leading worship at St. John on Saturday Nights, and we could really use some help. If you have any ability to sing or play, please prayerfully consider joining us. We would be happy to have you join us even for an occasional week - no large commitment is needed. We rehearse every Saturday at 5pm, before the 6pm service that we lead, and we do both hymns and contemporary pieces as part of the blended service. Please feel free to contact Jeff Ziech at 815-508-0112 if you are interested or have questions.
