CLOSER

As we grow closer to each other, we grow stronger

We are the hands and feet of Jesus in this world. As we do the work He called us to do, we will naturally draw others closer as we seek to draw closer to others.

GriefShare

GriefShare is a support group for people grieving the death of a special person in their life.  It is led by someone personally experienced with grief who can help you face grief's challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Video lessons are combined with group discussion to provide hope, support, and healing.  You don't have to grieve alone.

GriefShare is non-denominational and open to the public.
If you have questions, call us at 309-673-3641.

mommy moments

Caring Hearts

The Caring Hearts Ministry serves the people in our congregation who are homebound, hospitalized, or living in nursing homes. Caring Hearts ministers are trained lay volunteers who provide a Christ connection through prayer, active listening, Scripture reading, sermon CDs, devotions and heartfelt hugs.

The Caring Hearts Ministry connects and loves those who are physically unable to regularly attend worship or join in the life of the church.

To inquire about training or for more information, contact the church office at 309-673-3641. Caring hearts is co-chaired by Jeanette Kosier and Kristy Gorenz.

Neutral Ground

Neutral Ground, working in conjunction with Positive Health Solutions (PHS, formerly HIHAC, the multi-county HIV/AIDS Center),  is open each Tuesday from 1-3 PM to provide friendship for those persons with HIV/AIDS.  Case managers from PHS select each client based on financial need. The case worker will  fill out a request form for various household cleaning items, toiletries, and paper good items, and then send the guest to us. Our volunteers distribute cleaning supplies, disinfectants, soap, and personal hygiene items to help persons with HIV/AIDS in their constant struggle against further life-threatening infections and diseases.
