Church Newsletter

Each month, our office manager, Laura Heubner, invites everyone from the church to provide information for our monthly church newsletter, THE MESSENGER.  THE MESSENGER, provides information on activities going on within the church, a monthly message from the Bishop or our Pastor, highlights of our church volunteers, birthday and anniversary celebrations, and our prayer lists.  If you have information to be included in the next church newsletter, please contact Laura at [email protected] or call the church office at 217-632-7689.
