Philippians 2:13-15 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. 14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing,So that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” The you will shine among them like stars in the sky.

We are planning a combined group activity with our youth groups. On 1/19/20 we are planning on going to Iron Coyote in Bloomington/Normal. We will be leaving the church at 1pm and returning around 4ish. The cost for this activity is $10 per person. I need to reserve times so I have to have RSVP by 1/13/20 to make sure we have a time slot. Once I have secured a time spot I will send out the waivers for parents to sign. Please RSVP: Becky at 309-241-5423
