Manteno Baseball/Softball Equipment Exchange
It is our 2nd year of partnering with the Manteno Youth Baseball/Softball Association with the goal of helping local kids access the equipment they need to play. As such, we are looking for equipment. Between now and February 27, containers will be available outside the church and at the Manteno Public Library to drop off used bats, gloves, shoes, helmets, bags, and pants. We will collect and clean the equipment. On Saturday, March 4, from 9am-12pm, we will have a free exchange at the church for the community. So, start cleaning out your garage and let your old equipment bless a new player!
GriefShare Journey Group
Thursdays | 6:30-8:30pm | GriefShare is a special weekly seminar and support group to help and encourage those who have lost a spouse, child, family, or friend through death. It is designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one. The group will be led by caring people who have experienced grief and understand the pain and what it takes to move forward. Pat Bialecke and Diane Ruch will be leading this group beginning February 16 on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm and ending May 11. Contact Pat Bialacke at 815.353.5804 for more information or to register.
February 18 & 19 | Stephen Sickel will be joining us to talk about his time in missions and the impact of Faith Promise. Faith Promise gifts are gifts given systematically for global missions throughout the year. They are a promise between the individual and God. Giving through Faith Promise is an adventure and an opportunity to allow God to show how He provides when we open our hearts in generosity. Saturday night, 6pm, we are having a soup dinner and listening to Stephen speak about his and God's work. No dish required and no signup, just come. Digital Faith Promise Cards are available at https://forms.gle/wtuk1PVy2AzgErZD9
Wednesday, February 22 | 6:30pm | Join us for a special service that marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a season that is a time of penitence, discipline, and renewal. Children and youth are invited to join the service. PreK programming and nursery will be provided in the children's center. Supper will be provided beforehand from 5:30-6:15pm as usual.
Middle School RIOT
Friday, February 24 | 7-10pm | 5th-8th Graders, join us for a night of fun, friends, 9-Square, and pizza. Properly chaperoned of course. The theme for the night is "Jersey Night". I'm pretty sure it is sports jerseys and not Jersey Shore, Jersey Mikes, or Jersey Cows, but be sure to check with Pastor Marcus. Anyway, ladies bring snacks and guys are responsible for drinks.
Run & Fun Community Playgroup
Friday, February 24 | 9:30-11am | Mamas and preschoolers, come to a community playdate in the gym. Bring your preschool friends, ride the cars, crawl through the tunnels, shoot the short baskets, and let your mamas enjoy bagels and coffee.
Non-Traditional Giving Class
Saturday, February 25 | 10am | Most families give to our church via cash, check, or online giving but did you know some families gain added tax benefits by giving corn, beans, stock, or via donor-advised funds, IRA charitable rollovers, etc. Not all charitable gifts are created equal. Some provide more tax benefits than others. You are invited to join Dan Ferris as he shares how you can maximize the benefits of your charitable giving and reviews basic estate planning. Dan welcomes your participation or questions if you would like to call 815.370.3319.
Giving statements for 2022 have been sent out. You should have received this information by this time. If you have not, this information is also available in the Church CCB database where you can print it yourself. If you need help accessing CCB or have other questions, please call or email the church office.
Friday and Saturday, March 17-18 | 4th-6th Graders, join kids across the district for a high-energy event for live music, interactive teaching, small group discussion, games, snacks, and fun! The cost is $60, the event is in Naperville, and the last day for registration is February 13 (Monday). Contact Pastor Amy for info or visit the district website - ccdnaz.org/superstart
