“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly wait to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Everyone is invited to celebrate the wonderful gift God has given us by attending one or both of our two worship services. Start Easter out right by attending the Sunrise Worship Service on Easter morning in the Chapel at 6 a.m. as we “discover” that Christ has risen and brings light to our world! Come to the Easter Resurrection Celebration in our Sanctuary at 10 a.m. with our choirs and brass ensemble participating and leading us in praising God for His goodness to us.
(Rockford, IL) The men of the church are sponsoring an all church dinner this year following worship service on the 24th of May. All are invited to join us for a little Italian food, fellowship and fun. We “went” out West last year for a Hoe-Down, which was fun. This year we’ll try going way out east, across the “big pond”.
The price for dinner will be the same: Adults - $10.00 & children 4-10 -$5.00, 3 & under – free. Please RSVP to the church office, 815-962-6061 by May 20th. If you have any questions, call Geri, 815-877-2141 or 815-979-2427.
