Welcome back, family and friends! Special shout out to all of our visitors! We are so pleased you joined us for worship. Lisa Jasinski has been absent more than a year for covid quarantine and returned to us today! YAY!  We have missed her smiling face! She says Samantha is coming from England in May, and we are eager to see her again.

Standing ovation to Judy Fash for adorning the outside planters, the cross, and the sanctuary so festively! Her handcrafted tomb display on the baptismal tank is outstanding, so we will leave these up a bit longer since so many of you appreciate the beauty.

Worship songs were “Forever”, “My Redeemer Lives”, “Who You Say I Am”, “Glorious Day”, and “Greater Is He That Is In Me”. Pastor Billy continued his series, “Cancelled” with a message called “Cancelling the Voice of the Enemy”. Text was Ephesians 4:21-27.  Go to the main menu and click WATCH late Sunday evening to view our preaching service and past messages.

Thanks for helping restock the community’s food pantry today. Remember, from now on, we are asked to double bag all items to avoid accidental rips and spills.

 

Saturday’s Donuts and Devotional for men has been postponed until May.  Sorry about that, guys. You can eat double next month to make up for it. Remember, you MUST sign up at the Connection Table if you plan to attend.  This is no longer a drop in as it was before covid shut down. We now need to know how many seats to set up and how many pastries to purchase.

Special Ops Prayer Service is Friday April 30, 6:30 pm at the church.  This month the focus is on healing. Everybody is invited.  Stay for the whole thing, or just part of it. Pastor Bob can answer any questions.

We have resumed signing birthday cards for the incarcerated men and women in Graybars Project. Everybody likes to feel cared for and remembered, so check the baptismal table in the back of the sanctuary each week for cards if you wish to participate.

Thank you to Teresa Page and her brother-in-law, John Newcomer for the donation of six rectangular tables! How kind!  We are ALWAYS able to put extra tables to good use around here.

Pastor Billy’s Book of Acts online study is Tuesdays at 6:30 pm on his Face Book page.  “Worship Wednesday” videos are live at noon by him on Facebook, too. Tune in to hear a quick devotion and praise music. This week he played “Who You Say I Am”.

Pastor Julian has begun his new Thursday 6:30 pm online Bible study on his Face Book page.  “Among Friends” features a different topic each week with Julian and various friends. This week’s speaker was Carolyn Walker, missionary to Haiti, and the topic is “Jireh- Our God Provides”.  Next week Julie Beader, missionary to children, will speak about “Finding Your Mission”.

Happy belated anniversary wishes to Billy and Penny! Our wonderfully efficient church secretary, Kathleen Milligan, celebrated a birthday Thursday. Her daughter tells us Kathleen is 22!  Happy Birthday to Sara Moehle today! Balloon Artist Autumn Hensle celebrates on the 12th and PK, Noel Knott, has her big day on the 14th!  Nick Golden, Jan’s son with the million dollar smile, turns 29 on the 15th.  Little Kevin Ward has his 16th birthday on the 17th.  Last, but certainly not least, is our own Pastor Billy whose birthday is next Sunday!

Congratulations to Justice Petersen! She was given an acting audition and scored very high. She has been offered a once in a lifetime chance to attend a January 2022 National Acting Convention in L.A. with classes and agents. Speak to Blaine, Cynthia, or Justice to see how you can help.  She is passionate and so excited for this opportunity!

We hope to see all of you back for service next week. First song kicks off at 10 am. Thank you for all you give and do to keep this ministry running smoothly. Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Easter! Rejoice and be glad!

Welcome to all of our visitors on this high holy holiday! We are so pleased you joined us for worship.

Standing ovation to Judy Fash for adorning the outside flower pots, the cross, and the sanctuary so festively! Her handcrafted tomb display on the baptismal tank was outstanding!  If you missed it today, please stop by next week to admire it.  Many were seen snapping photos of it!

Worship songs were “Happy Day”, “Up From the Grave He Arose”, “Living Hope”, “Hallelujah For the Cross”, Because He Lives”, and “Christ the Lord is Risen Today”.  Today Pastor Billy began a new series, “Cancelled” with a message called “Cancelled Debt”  featuring a surprise appearance by Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. Text was Genesis 3:1-13 and Matthew 28:1-10.  Go to the main menu and click WATCH late Sunday evening to view our preaching service and past messages.

Did you get a chance to peek into the kids’ church today?  They had their space all decorated for a whoop-ti-do to celebrate Resurrection Sunday, too!

Thank you to all who joined us for Good Friday evening Communion service. It was precious and sacred with candles, crucifixion video, beautiful music, scripture, and nailing our sins to the cross. Songs were “Above All”, “How Deep the Father’s Love For Us”, and “Were You There”. Much appreciation to all the helpers.

Because of Easter, we did NOT bring items for food pantry today. We will do that NEXT WEEK. Remember, from now on, we are asked to double bag all items to avoid bag rips.

Saturday, April 10 is Men’s Donuts and Devotional at the church.  It starts at 8 a.m. and should be done in about an hour.  Coffee and donuts are free.  Hope to see a room full!

Thumbs up to all the good folks who helped write encouraging words to all of our inmates in Graybars Project, and thanks to Sandy Chambers for donating all the cards.  We have received several grateful responses from men and women behind bars. Everybody likes to feel cared for and remembered.

Pastor Billy’s Book of Acts online study is Tuesdays at 6:30 pm on his Face Book page.  “Worship Wednesday” videos are live at noon by him on Facebook, too. Tune in to hear a quick devotion and praise music. This week he played “Were You There”.

Pastor Julian has begun his new Thursday 6:30 pm online Bible study on his Face Book page.  “Among Friends” features a different topic each week with Julian and various friends. This week’s Maundy Thursday speaker was Pastor Steve Barack, a Messianic Jew who talked about Jesus in the Passover. Next week’s speaker is Carolyn Walker, missionary to Haiti, and the topic is Jireh- Our God Provides.

Happy Birthday to Sara Moehle on the 11th! Happy Birthday to P.K. Jordan Knott also on the 11th!

We are glad to hear that Darren Rych’s hand surgery went well Wednesday.  Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Sending out healing wishes to Lakeda Vaughn all they way down in Texas. She is in the process of moving and will provide a new mailing address soon.

Thank you to the Smits for sharing all the bags of cranberry sauce.  That should go well with all the turkey and ham being eaten today.

We hope to see all of you back for service next week.  You are loved here. Thank you for all you do! Enjoy your  sunny holiday weekend!

Hello, everybody!  Thanks for checking out this page on Palm Sunday 2021. Here’s what’s going on this first day of Holy Week at our church:

Our attendance is really picking up again, so you are going to need to come a bit early as seats are now filling up fast!  It was wonderful to see visitors and to see Kathy Felchlin and Inez  walk in after months of absence!

Worship songs were “Enough”, “Hosanna”, “Jesus Messiah”, “Old Rugged Cross” for Communion and “At the Cross”.  Today Pastor Billy returned to the pulpit and continued the “Indulgences” series with a message called “Arrogance” from Luke 19:28-48, the story of the Triumphal Entry.  Monthly prayer meeting was held after service. THREE people gave their hearts to God this morning! Go to the main menu and click WATCH late Sunday evening to view our preaching service and past messages.

Special Ops Prayer Meeting was Friday evening at the church. Mark your calendar for the last Friday of April for the next one. That particular one will focus on health, so bring friends who need God to heal their bodies.

Because of Easter, do NOT bring items for food pantry next Sunday.  Because we need the chair space for the holiday service, we will collect the following week. Remember, from now on, we are asked to double bag all items to avoid bag rips.

Pastor Billy’s Book of Acts online study is Tuesdays at 6:30 pm on his Face Book page.  “Worship Wednesday” videos are live at noon by him on Facebook, too. Tune in to hear a quick devotion and praise music. This week he played “It Is Well”.

Good Friday service is at the church at 7 pm on April 2.  This is traditionally one of our best attended services of the year. Please invite others and make plans to join us for music, worship, scripture, and Communion. You can help us by sharing Pastor’s invitation post on your FB page.

Happy Birthday to Kristen Hippenhammer on the 27th! Happy Birthday to the head of our security team, George Carroll! Kevin Chambers and Pastor Julian share an April 1st birthday! Mrs. Cornelius is celebrating this week, too, and we wish her joy and happiness from across the miles.

We hope to see all of you back for service 7 pm Friday and again on Easter morning to celebrate the Resurrection!  We expect a good crowd, so please be on time and in your seat for the first song!

Hi, everybody!  Thanks for checking out this page. Here’s what’s going on this week at Revolution:

Kudos to all who remembered to roll their clock ahead an hour for Daylight Savings Time.  Today Pastor Billy turned over the pulpit to Pastor Bob Smith who continued the February series, “Indulgences” with a message called “Eat, Drink & Be Merry” from Luke 12:16-21.  Worship songs were “Friend of God”, “How Can I Keep From Singing”, “Holy Spirit You Are Welcome Here”, and “Take Me Back”.  You can go to the main menu and click WATCH late Sunday evening to view our preaching service and past messages.

We are serving coffee and cookies again! YAY! Come early and enjoy a treat before service or take one for the road. Coffee is not taken away until about 15 minutes after service. Thank you to our Hospitality volunteers who show up a bit early and stay a bit late to make this possible.  Wanna help?  They’d be happy to teach you the ropes.  Thanks to the mystery person who shared the fresh limes!

 

Graybars Project table offered sweet treats and an inspirational St. Patrick’s Day bulletin board as a tip o’ the cap to the Irish in the congregation and our community.  The weekly display was discontinued during 2020 covid closures and restrictions, so it was good to see it make a reappearance. We are once again able to sign birthday cards for our inmates there.

 

Concealed Carry class was taught yesterday at the church with near half our congregation attending. Qualifying at the range will be 8 am-4pm on Saturday, March 20.  Class is $100 plus $15-20 range fee. Payment is to be made to the instructor.  Certification is good in IL and FL. Bring your own sack lunch.
