We need your help! Elliott is hosting, along with help from Virden and Central Baptist, the annual ABYouth Gathering November 3-5 and we need volunteers to help with food, housing, clean-up, and more. There are sign-up sheets at the Welcome Kiosk in the Narthex. Please consider helping out and making this event special for our region's youth!

The Second Annual City Wide Hymn Fest will be held at the Thomas Rees Carillon in Washington Park at 3:30 pm on Sunday, September 24. This interdenominational hymn sing is free to the public and open to everyone who enjoys singing along with, or listening to, traditional hymns. The Trinity Lutheran Church Summer Band will provide musical interludes. Bring lawn chairs or blankets.

There will be a Celebration of Life service for Jerry Smoczyk at the church at 3:00 pm Friday, September 29th. Visitation will be from 1:30-3:00. A dinner will be held in Kriebel Hall after the service. The Smoczyk family would like to suggest donations go to IHDN, 3950 Millstone Dr., Springfield, IL 62711.
