Weekly Newsletter

Weekly Worship Gathering

As usual we'll be gathering this Saturday (August 19th) at our home (505 Freemont St, Yorkville) for our Via Christus gathering. The gathering begins at 5pm. We will be discussing Luke 10:1-24 together. There will also be a time for sharing God Things (prayer requests, praises, personal art, poetry or music, etc.) so please be thinking about what you might like to bring to the group. It'll be like a spiritual potluck!

Switching to Sundays!
Don't forget that we'll be making the switch Labor Day weekend, September 3rd and then meeting every Sunday morning at 10am from then on. The gatherings will still be in our living room for the time being.

Music & Movies in the Park
Every Friday night Yorkville sponsors either live music or family movies in one of the city parks. There is just one more night of live music at the Town Square Park (along Rt. 47 just north of the river) on August 25. Movies are monthly on August 18 & September 15 and start at dusk in the Beecher Community Park (on Game Farm Rd - just take Somonauk St across 47 and it curves to become Game Farm). Bring some camp chairs if you want to come and enjoy a movie together with potential new friends from Yorkville. They also let you camp out overnight in the park if you so desire.

Hometown Days in Yorkville
Yorkville's annual Hometown Days Festival will be over Labor Day weekend, September 1-3. We need people to help me set-up and run the booth between 2-8pm on Friday, Sept 1. Please let me know if you're able to help for any stretch of time that Friday.

Vision Team
Our next Vision Team meeting will be in three weeks on Thursday, September 7th. We'll be discussing different metaphors for leadership and talking about what the qualities of a good leader really are. We'll also be doing fondue for dinner.

Backyard Party
We will be having a backyard party for our whole neighborhood and anyone else who wants to come on Saturday, September 16th . Mark your calendars now and start thinking about people to invite.

Food Drive
We will be holding another food drive in mid-October (October 15 & 21). Please continue collecting paper bags for us to use. It saves us money and is good for the environment! :)

That's all for now. Hope to see you on Saturday!
