    We have continuous collections for 

    St. John's Breadline:  We collect plastic containers with lids which are used to send home meals for those who are served through St. John's Breadline, a ministry to feed the hungry in Springfield, IL.  There is a collection barrel located on the main floor hallway.  

    Shoeman Ministry:  We collect good used shoes to donate to the Shoeman Ministry, who use these shoes to provide for needs in both the United States and various countries in Africa.  For more information on the Shoeman Ministry please go to their website.  There is a collection barrel on the main floor hallway.  We ask that all pair of shoes either have their laces tied together or have a rubber band holding them together.  

    Penny Jar / Angel Tree:  We collect loose change in an empty 5 gallon water bottle located on a table in the main hallway. The money collected is used to purchase items for the local Angel Tree ministry which provides Christmas gifts for children in need.  

    Food Bank:  We have a grocery shopping cart located in the main hallway where you may drop off food items for the community food bank. The community food bank is located in the Salvation Army Store.  There is a list of the items most needed in the shopping cart, but all food is accepted.

When are the worship services and what are they like?

Where do I park?


Parking is located in the rear of the church building and we have visitor parking reserved for guests. The handicapped and visitor parking is located near the back double doors of the church.   There is an elevator is available, access is from the parking lot toward the north side.




Where is the Sanctuary and where do I enter the building?


The sanctuary is located on the main level of the church. Enter the church through the west entry under the portico. Once inside, go up one flight of stairs to the main level and down the hallway, the entrance to the sanctuary is located on the left hand side.  There is an elevator available.




When do I need to arrive?


Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start of Worship or even earlier as we have coffee and fellowship happening in the parlor area near the sanctuary.




What do I need to wear?


 Dress comfortably. While some people dress up, most wear casual and comfortable clothes on Sunday mornings.  Pastor Matt likes to say, “Feel free to come dressed for the day, not just the morning.”  Bible Study nights are always casual. Don't worry about what you wear, just come and experience the welcoming fellowship with others. 




What about my children?


The nursery is located on the lower level of the church for children up to age 5.  Care is available during the worship service and the Sunday School hour.  There are Sunday School classes for children from kindergarten through Fifth grade.  Most meet on the second floor of our building.   (There are no children’s Sunday School classes during the month of August.)




Kids Alive is the name of our Sunday morning Children’s Ministry program.  Jessie Huber leads Kids Alive, which provides an environment for children to learn about Jesus at their level through the use of puppets, visual aids, songs, Bible study and more.  Preschool through 5th grade are encouraged to attend. Kids Alive is at 9:20 a.m. on Sunday morning, during the Contemporary worship service.  (Children are dismissed from the worship service after the opening songs.)
