FIFTH SUNDAY APPEAL: United Voices for Children

On Sunday, May 30, we join dozens of other Northern Illinois United Methodist congregations who give generously to support our three outstanding agencies that serve at-risk children, youth and families: Kids Above All, MYSI, and Rosecrance.  You may either write a check payable to First Church with “Fifth Sunday Appeal” in the memo line or simply donate online at giveuvc.org (https://unitedvoicesforchildren.org/donate/ )

Supporting UVC’s Fifth Sunday Offering makes a real difference in the lives of children and youth in our community through these difficult times and going forward. Thank you for your support!

Stewardship 2021

Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.  Matthew 4:19

 

COVID-19 has changed our way of life and our way of church.  Now more than ever we need to create a community that helps people experience God’s love in the world.

The 2021 Stewardship campaign will focus our attention on being and becoming disciples of Jesus Christ through

  • Being Part of the Body of Christ
  • Becoming More Like Jesus, and
  • Joining Jesus in Ministry.

During the pandemic, many of you have shared the comfort and hope you have received from our Ministry at First Church.  Let’s join together in continuing the ministry of Jesus Christ in 2021.

October 30   Discipleship Survey
November 8, 15, 22    Sermon Series on Discipleship
November 17   Dessert Gathering on ZOOM with Rev. Dr. Joy J. Moore
