“To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” Matthew 28: 19-20a spells out the task of this mission. We seek to fulfill that mission by becoming an ‘inviting, welcoming, nurturing, and serving community of Christ.’ We invite you to join us in that endeavor. We eagerly want to be in ministry with you, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Please pray for the clergy and lay delegates who are attending the SPECIAL SESSION OF OUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE, which will be held at Kishwaukee College (21193 Malta Road, Malta, IL 60150) on Saturday, November 16, 2019. There are three purposes on the agenda for the special session: 1. Approve the 2020 financial plan. 2. Hear a report from the Exploration Team. This team was formed as a result of legislation at our June session to explore our future as an Annual Conference, in light of the passing of the Traditional Plan at the special General Conference in February. 3. Take a special Bishop’s Appeal offering. The offering will be used to support and provide relief for farmers who are suffering from the weather conditions that delayed planting this spring due to constant rain followed by the effects of a drought during July.
