JULY IS CAMPING TIME!!
Please pray for our big kids and their families, as folks head out to camp, this week! For those of you who don't know, a week of camp can provide as much religious education as an entire year of Kids' Club! The kids will be enjoying canoeing, hiking, archery, s'mores around the campfire, and all the fun that comes with camping. They will also have the chance to fellowship together, learn more about their faith, and make lasting friendships with youth for all over our conference. Bless them and keep them in your prayers!
LOOKING FORWARD... TOT CAMP! July 15th and 17th, 1:00-3:00
Are you 2, 3, 4, or 5 years old and looking for a hot time during Camping Week? Well... DO NOT feel left out! WE have a camp for YOU! TOT Camp is our "camping" experience at church for those little ones who are not quite old enough for Pilgrim Park! We will meet on Tuesday, July 15th and Thursday, July 17th for fun at the church! We will have some crafts, songs, stories, play time (on the playground), and fun with Pastor Amy! Please call the church to sign-up! You can go either both days or either days! This will be GREAT!

First-Ever Field Trip: Sycamore Museum!!!
Pastors Dennis and Amy met with the Glovers to tour the Sycamore Museum, located at 1730 North Main Street, in Sycamore. Rob Glover has put together the research and artifacts concerning the life of Gen. Dutton. Nick Glover (our confirmand) is a docent and showed us all around his area of expertise. His dad (Rob) showed us the rest of the exhibit. For those who don't know, Gen. Dutton and his family used to live on the land where our church is now located. The Dutton family gave us the land to build the church on and we named Dutton Hall after them. This was a really great tour! Thanks to the Glovers for making it extra special!
CONFIRMATION FOR Nick Glover...
On July 6th, Nick Glover was Confirmed! We appreciate everyone's care and support, especially from his sponsor, Roger Jacobson! This is a very special day in the life of Nick, who is now considered an adult in our congregation. Already, Nick has rolled up his sleeves and gotten to work, helping around the church. He plans to help on the Board of Religious Education, as well. Bless him!
Jesus didn't reject people... neither do we.
