End the Gun Violence Vigil
This Friday, May 17th from 7 until 9 p.m., an “End the Gun Violence” demonstration will be held in front of our church. We will quietly inform our elected officials that there is a need for further discussion and positive action.
Please know that we are grateful for the support and constructive comments so many of you have expressed over the past week. We hope that you can join us this Friday evening.

Fall Fundraiser We will be holding a fundraiser this fall and are looking for any and all volunteers who are interested in helping to plan it. Will it be a Goods and Services Auction or something else? Join the organizing team and have fun helping to make that decision. Interested volunteers can contact the church office.
Mutual Ground Donations Mutual Ground is in need of undergarments for the women in their program. They particularly have asked for underwear in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8. If you would like to donate, you may place your donation in the box that is placed in the hallway leading to Paxton Hall. We will collect for the next three weeks. Thanks!

It’s time to register for summer camp!
Did you know that the Illinois UCC Conference runs two wonderful camps for children, youth and adults? Tower Hill Camp in Sawyer, Michigan is right next to Lake Michigan, and Pilgrim Park is in Princeton, Ill. Both are beautiful pieces of property, offering various summer camps and retreat opportunities.
The summer catalog of offerings is hot off the presses, and you can find week-long camps for young children, families, teens, and grandparents. The website is the best option: www.il-odm.org. Questions? See Marcia Schneider.
Our Pastoral Search Team is formed and begining to meet. Please keep them in your prayers and seek ways to support and encourage them. Our team members are: Jim Kelly, Dale Grischow, Ann Eustis, Kris Luedtke, Julie Crane Knanishu, Irene Crane and Tracy Beckley.
