This Easter Sunday was a little bit different than past years. We have been working hard to finish phase 1 of our building program, (pictures coming soon) so we haven't had as much time to promote a Big Day for Easter Sunday this year. God still gave a good result with over 60 in attendance! We are excited about the prospects of warmer weather and will be starting up an additional soul-winning opportunity on Thursday nights soon!

OUR CHURCH LOGO HAS BEEN UPDATED! WE HAVE A LOGO THAT IS FIRST CLASS! OUR LOGO IS MODERN, BUT OUR MESSAGE HASN'T CHANGED! WE LIKE TO THINK THAT OUR CHURCH IS JUST FINE BEING OLD-FASHIONED!!

Round-Up Sunday was awesome! Every single Sunday School class broke their attendance goal, there were 58 in Sunday School, and God blessed with several believing on Him as Saviour, and one who followed Him in baptism! There were pumpkins, horses, and train rides for all the kids, as well as food for everyone!
Each Thursday night during the non-winter months we go out door to door and pass out gospel tracts. This past Thursday, there were 12 people who hit the streets in Bushnell, Illinois to give out the Good News! One person trusted Christ, and another family has committed to come Sunday! If you are looking for a church that is focused on preaching the gospel to everyone, look no further!
Pastor Eddy has been teaching a verse by verse series on Wednesday nights for the past couple years now. Right now, we are studying the book of Philippians. The attendance has grown from 10-15 to over 30 and as high as 41 for the midweek service! God's Word draws His people to His house!
THIS PAST SUNDAY, WE BROKE THE 20-MARK IN JUNIOR CHURCH. BROTHER CHESTER AND JESSICA ARE TEACHING THIS MONTH AND DOING A GREAT JOB! SEVERAL OF THE KIDS ARE MAKING GREAT DECISIONS FOR THE LORD. ALSO, WEDNESDAY NIGHT WE HAD A GOOD CROWD WITH 41 IN ATTENDANCE FOR BIBLE STUDY!!!! WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING BROTHER ADRIAN FERRARI WITH US THIS SUNDAY.
