EFCMM continues to follow state government guidelines regarding large-group gatherings through the month of May.  Please join us on-line for worship on Sunday at 10:00 AM.  You can find us on Facebook or You Tube.  If you invite someone to join you, please gather responsibly.

Sunday Morning - Sermon
This week our text is Ruth 2.  Chapter 1 ended with the widow Naomi returning to her hometown, poor and alone.  But she is not alone!  Ruth is with her, and that is the sign that God has not finished with Naomi yet.  The signs starts to pile up as the story continues, and this should give hope to us as well.  Though we are needy and undeserving, God shows his kindness to us through (extra)ordinary providence.

Sunday Evening
  • 5:00 PM  Virtual Youth Group  
  • 5:00 PM  Wehler Small Group (virtual)

Thank you for your faithful giving to EFCMM during these uncertain times.  Your generosity is a gracious reminder of God's provision and care for his family, the church.  As you are able, please remember your offering, which is both an act of worship and partnership in the mission. This might be the time to try our online giving option (which you can always find on our website), 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.


A Video for Mother's Day

Help us make a video for Mother's Day!  We are inviting mothers in our congregation to make a short video for us to share on Mother’s Day, May 10, during our worship service.  While it is appropriate to honor mothers, we want to turn this into fuel for worshiping the Creator of mothers and motherhood.  Here’s how you can be involved:  
1. Turn your phone to landscape (horizontal).
2.  In one sentence, answer the following question:  How has the gift of motherhood brought you closer to God?
3.  Submit it through Facebook Messenger to EFCMM or by email to Pastor Logan by Friday, May 8:
