GOSPEL OF MARK AS LIVING STORY at University of Illinois Lutheran Campus Center. Come hear the Gospel of Mark told from memory. The entire thing! This isn't acting per se; it's more akin to the oral traditions passed on before the books of the Bible were ever written. This is not only amazing to watch but also to learn to do yourself. We'll have the entire reading of Mark on Friday, Oct 13 (takes around 2 hours) and then offer a couple workshops Saturday so you can share this gift with your own communities of faith. Friday evening, 7pm performance: We ask for a freewill donation (suggested donation is $5 per person). Our students decided that all proceeds from Friday's performance will support a local organization in great need called Courage Connection. We require an RSVP by Oct 6 for Friday night to -- our space is small and if we get too many interested, we will go to a different venue.

THE FOOD PANTRY DISTRIBUTION is held on the first Thursday of every month from 3:30 – 5:30 pm. You can call The United Methodist Church at 815-635-3613 or Cindy Hall at 815-635-3248. We always accept donations and we need brown paper bags and plastic bags.
