Worshipping God and being together are two of the three most important reasons Hope Happens Here and has since our congregation began in 1966. From the beginning Hope happened through prayer and music, through encouraging each other, serving God actively and faithfully, following in the way of Jesus Christ, and leaning heavily upon God's Holy Spirit. We strive to be open minded, welcoming, and inclusive because that is what we feel God's presence is about among us. Hope Happens Here is not an empty slogan, but who God intends us to be inside and outside of this church building, which is the third important reason we exist: to be salt and light, and Hope wherever we go.
Peace and Grace to you.

We have familiar artists returning and several exciting new artists joining our show. We look forward to seeing you this fall! Look for our ad in the Illinois Times in late October and see you November 7 and 8th! We will have raffle baskets and special handcrafted items from Kenya for silent auction.

Spring rains have kept our garden growing but at times it was challenging when work days are scheduled! However under the direction of Master Gardener, Sue, we managed to pull the last of the broccoli last week and ready the soil for our summer plantings of sweet potatoes and cucumbers! Our youngest gardener, Reagan, enjoyed helping one of our senior gardeners, Keith, plant sweet potatoes. We have had many deliveries to Kumler and are ready to harvest our onions, carrots and swiss chard this week. Our fourth annual Hope in Action week is coming up beginning July 18-26th and we will see new gardeners tending our garden. We will be ready for them to harvest more of our summer crops and deliver to Kumler.
