Rally Day Food Drive

We will be having a food drive for the People’s Resource Center on Rally Day, Sunday, September 9th.

To make it easier for you to remember to bring donations, we have reusable shopping bags for you to bring home, fill with food, and return to church. The children at church camp decorated the bags and the PRC clients will be able to keep them to use when they shop. The bags will be available in the parlor on Sunday, August 26th and Sunday, September 2nd and in the office during the week. There will be a list of needed items inside the bag. If you can’t get to church to get a bag, don’t worry. We will accept donations in paper and plastic bags too! The list of needed items can be found below.

We hope to get a big collection to help stock the pantry for the fall.

If you have any questions or would be available to help deliver the items to the PRC that Sunday, please contact Nancy Bifulco at nbifulco@msn.com or at 630-241-3530.

Thank you in advance for your donations!

Lent: Day 35

“And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?” – Matthew 6:27

When I was in high school, our choir sang the musical “Celebrate Life” by Buryl Red. The song that affected me most was the one Mary sang after Jesus was crucified. She sang “He died alone, forsaken. Let him rest, let him rest for a while.” She pleads with the guards to “Carry Him gently.” Now that I am a mother, I can’t imagine the pain Mary experienced, knowing that her son was destined for greatness, but also for great tragedy. How could she handle it?
