Church-in-the Park – Sunday September 26 @ Peterson Park | Combined Service at 10:30 followed by potluck at 11:30
2021 Literary Event – October 7 at 6:00 in the Old Fellowship Hall. Featuring pie and beverage for $5. Our discussion book will be “The Day the World Came to Town” by Jim Defede. This book is a compilation of stories about the town of Gander, Newfoundland in the days following September 11. When US airspace was closed, 38 planes with more than 6,500 passengers were diverted to Gander. This town, with fewer than 10,000 people, responded by putting their lives on hold to meet the needs of these travelers while showing love, kindness, and generosity. This truly is an inspirational read. Books are available for checkout at Mattoon Public Library. Please read them and return them quickly so that others can access them. Sign up for this event in the church office or call 235.5676.
