Sermon and Communion
We return to Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi for our text this week:  Philippians 1:27-30.  Paul was the one who first brought the gospel to them, but many years later he continued to be concerned that they would live “worthy of the gospel.”  While we cannot do anything to deserve our salvation, we must live up to our calling in the gospel. 

For those who will be gathered at our church building, we will celebrate our communion together in Christ through pre-packaged bread and cup at each seat.  For those who wish to partake at home, we encourage you to make use of bread and grape juice that you have, or you may simply observe with a heart of gratitude for our Savior.

Helping Hand
Loaves & Fish, our community food pantry, will again provide “Thanksgiving Boxes” of food for needy residents for the Thanksgiving holiday. EFCMM will provide 20 of these boxes, at a cost of $16 each.  You are invited to help us purchase these boxes through your October Helping Hand offering.

 
Activities & Events
  • Faith & Finance:  11:30 AM, Fellowship Hall
  • Youth Group does NOT meet

Giving
As you are able, please remember your offering, which is both an act of worship and partnership in the mission.  For those gathered at the church building, offering boxes will be available to receive your offering.  For those at home, we have our online giving option, but of course you can still mail us a check if you prefer.  Our mailing address is 102 S Seminary Avenue, Mt. Morris, IL  61054.  Remember that any gifts for our Helping Hand fund need to be designated as such.  

 
Sanctuary Renovation

Before we can proceed with our sanctuary renovation, we need to make a decision regarding our sanctuary seating options. Please give us your feedback hereAll adults are encouraged to respond individually.  The deadline to respond is Sunday, October 11.

Trunk or Treat Outreach

After conferring with the Village of Mt. Morris, we plan to once again host our annual Trunk or Treat outreach, assuming we have enough volunteers. We will not serve food, and volunteers will need to follow safety guidelines.  Before we can go much further with our plans, we need our volunteer team in place.  Reply here to let us know how you can help with this outreach.
 

Worth A Look...

What connects you to our church?  The following article explains the biblical view:  If it’s anything but Christ, then we’ve come together for the wrong reasons.  In fact, it’s the diversity of the body that highlights the beauty of our unity in Christ.  Read When Looking for a Church, Beware the “Right Fit.”
