For Sunday, January 17, 2021
Sunday School at 8:45 AM
Worship at 10:00 AM
Nursery care is offered. 
On-line worship is available on Facebook and You Tube

For sanctuary and balcony seating, use the south entrance to the building.   Please sit only in pews where bulletins are placed.  For Fellowship Hall seating, please use the north entrance.  All tables in the Fellowship Hall are open for seating.

We are no longer asking the Fellowship Hall class to remain there for the service.  Instead, we are asking everyone to consider sitting in the Fellowship Hall once a month for the worship service . 
In Daniel 2, the mighty king of Babylon is losing sleep over a bad dream, but his advisors will lose their heads if they can’t interpret it for him!  Then and now, the truth that “God only knows” could leave us in fear and despair, but with faith it leads us to thanks and praise, humility and hope.

Tonight at EFCMM
5:00 PM  Youth Group - Girls Only!  Meet at the CE Center.

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.  

Worth A Look...

As part of our commitment to the value of human life, EFCMM is partnering with Hope Life Center’s Change for Life program. Click anywhere on the image below to view their announcement.

We invite you to take home a baby bottle (available at the Welcome Center) and fill with loose change for the ministry. Please return it to us by February 21.  If you prefer to give online, please use this link.  Click the "donate" button and then "personal donation" to make your gift.
