During limited service opportunities, we continue to volunteer at the Elburn Food Pantry. On the First Thursday of the month we send volunteers to distributed food to the clients in the Kaneland School District. We are on a drive up system through the winter. Up to four people are needed each month. To Volunteer speak to Pastor Nancy Blade or Carol Alfrey. ALSO if you know of any need for MASKS our three volunteers have been keeping us stocked at the church. Please don’t hesitate to take a few, especially children’s masks. Let’s get everyone covered. December missions are Holiday Spirit and Love gifts. Please support them with monetary donations. Thanks!
What Mission is to us!
Our mission field is anywhere beyond ourselves. Some mission happens within our building as we have always been a community center for gatherings small and large. We founded a child care center, now housed in the old school building with the Library, post office, Township office and bank. Through monthly mission projects we reach 12 organizations with our collections, time and prayers. Our newest outreach is to Blackberry Creek School and community. Several founders of our town and church came from Blackberry Creek. Now it has become a thriving community across from the Elburn train station. At risk families will receive our compassionate mentoring starting in 2020 with the KidsHope program. Because of Blackberry Creek’s suburban lifestyle our hope is to share the garden to table life we enjoy in Kaneville.
