Walk To Emmaus

If you are looking for a truly spiritual weekend to connect or reconnect with God, I suggest considering a Walk To Emmaus Weekend. It is a 72-hour experience with fellow Christians from around the QC area. The men’s walk is April 7-10 and women’s walk is April 14-17, both held at Camp Summit. : <!–split–>

Several BW individuals (Ade, Hein, Lawson, Mesick, Pikuza, Roseman) have attended in the past, and would be willing to share their experience and answer any questions you may have about the weekend. I ask that you be in prayer, as I will be in prayer for you, concerning God leading you into this new venture. You won’t be sorry.

Lenten Services

Each Wednesday evening  beginning February 17 through March 16 at 5:30 p.m., there will be a soup supper followed by a time of Bible Study in which we will be dissecting and studying the Lord’s Prayer.  If you want to make a donation for your supper, there are specially marked jars for your donation with the donations going toward the Africa University Scholarship that was established by the Illinois Great Rivers Conference last year.

If you are interested in providing soup for any Wednesday during Lent, please contact Pam Lawson.
