A day to help us understand our grief, pray together, and find new hope through the good news we have through Jesus Christ. 
Q. Why are we talking about Sisseton art supplies when we just finished collecting and distributing them? 
A. Because there are wonderful sales going on! 

The children really appreciate their gifts, so we want to continue this COTC tradition next year. Now is the perfect time to purchase school supplies in order to get the most value for your money. 

We are collecting  markers, crayons, scissors, and glue sticks  for next summer. 

So when shopping this month, please consider getting a head start on next year's donation. We will gladly store your purchases until the 2020 mission trip! Once again, thank you so much for your very generous support of this project!!
Pastor Julie will be having Café Hours on Thursday mornings from 9:00‑11:00 am at Tous Les Jours (20 E Golf Rd, corner of Roselle & Golf Rd & same strip mall as Office Depot). This time is a way to be visibly out in the community and provide time for members to visit the pastor away from the church. Stop in to say hi, enjoy a cup of coffee, and share a prayer if you like.
We are collecting items for the Schaumburg Food Pantry.  
 The pantry provides assistance to those in need within Schaumburg Township.  Items needed now are:
Paper Products
Pasta Sauce
Canned Fruit
Baking Items
Canned Chili
Pork N Beans
