 St. Thomas Announcements… Jan. 9th – 17th


This Week’s Highlights ….

Worship Service:  On Sunday, January 14 at the 10:00 a.m. Worship & Communion service Pastor Jeremiah’s sermon is entitled, “Listen”. The scripture reading for this is from I Samuel 3:1-20.  This service will also include our monthly communion service.

Leadership Team:  Will be meeting on Saturday, January 13.  Team members, please plan to attend this important meeting for future and transitional planning, a portion of which will be meeting with District Superintendent Wisdom and 1st UMC Pastor, Rev. Diss.

Memorial Service:  Pastor Jeremiah has been in touch with the Suh family regarding their plans for services.  The family has decided to have a private graveside service next week in Northbrook, near family, so there will be no service here at St. Thomas.  Your thoughts, prayers and notes of sympathy are encouraged and will be most welcome.

Prayer Requests:  If you would like to add someone or be added yourself to our weekly prayer list, just email or call the St. Thomas office 630-469-1214.  This week we pray …

  • For healing and successful treatments for those dealing with health concerns and specifically for those dealing with cancer.
