We have started planning the return of Bulldog Breakfast for our neighbors across the street. We encourage anyone who is interested in praying, volunteering, or contributing to Bulldog Breakfast to please let us know. You can contact Evie Johnson at email@example.com or Miranda in the church office 630-879-3721.
Preparations have begun for our church’s 150th Anniversary celebration! The celebration committee is looking for pictures, memorabilia, or memories from events at our church in the distant or more recent past. We would love to see, scan and borrow these items as we celebrate our church’s history. Please bring any items you would like to share to the church copy room and place them in the box marked BCC150. Also, please include identifying information with the items that would be helpful such as year, occasion, and people’s names, as well as your name and contact information. Thank you!
On Sunday mornings, from 8:30 am – 9:45 am, Gary Warner invites you to join a small group study in the Fireside Room. They are studying “1 John – Relying on the Love of God”.Author Scotty Smith takes us through 1 John and shows how a rich understanding of the love of God prepares us to thrive in times of great stress and strengthens us for every season of life. Relying on God’s love brings true joy that empowers us to be faithful in the face of opposition. Discover how we are to live in this world as children of light and how the best way to defeat spiritual warfare is to be preoccupied with Jesus. Participants will learn how knowing Jesus equals loving Jesus, and loving Jesus equals loving others. Because the Father already loves us as much as he loves Jesus, he is committed to making us like Jesus. For Questions or more info: Garywarner1@comcast.net

Usually at this time of year we would be resuming our “Second Cereal Sunday” collection of breakfast cereal to help provide backpacks full of meals for school children each weekend. However, that program is “on hold” until a process can be established within the safety guidelines that our Batavia schools are pursuing. Please pray for wisdom and the discernment of a clear path of helping meet the needs of those families who, in the past, relied on such help throughout the school year.
