The Spring Secretariat meeting that was planned for March 25 has been moved to April 29th at the Lanark Church of the Brethren at 326 South High Street in Lanark, Illinois.
The March meeting was rescheduled because those in northern Illinois were dealing with heavy snow.
This April Secretariat meeting will be a 2:00 PM. It will be a time to consider significant topics by Committee Chairs and all interested folks from the way of Christ.
The Illinois Way of Christ Spring meetings are coming up on Saturday, March 25th. I hope you can be there.
These are vital gatherings for the Way of Christ as the decisions made here will be definitive of this movement. Please be in prayer over the coming days for the Spirit’s leading in our discovery of God’s will.
The Secretariat meeting is at 3:00 PM at the United Pentecostal Church of Mendota at 4401 N State Highway 251 Mendota, IL 61342.
The Ultreya gathering begins with a carry-in meal at 5:00 PM and transitions to worship following this time of fellowship at the table. For the carry-in bring something to share. For worship come prepared to see God’s spirit at work. Bring your friends, family, and Pilgrim’s guide.
Make your plans now to join this gathering of Brothers and Sister in Christ as we discover Christ’s leading for the days to come. Minutes from the 11/12/23 meeting are linked here.
This gathering is at the United Pentecostal Church of Mendota at 4401 N State Highway 251, Mendota, IL 61342.
The Secretariat is beginning work on a September Ultreya for the Illinois Way of Christ community. (The Secretariat meets next on June 19th, please offer suggestions or volunteer to help.)
This gathering and fellowship meal is generally followed by singing, worship, communion, and sharing by a 4th day speaker. Feel free to invite and bring family and friends, even if they have not been involved in a Cursillo Weekend.
We are still watching the covid-19 concerns and plan to consider those in our planning and the gathering circumstances as that date approaches.
If our gathering looks possible, we will go ahead with the meal and worship. We pray that is the case so participants can bring their own place setting ( plates, cups, silverware ), lawn chair, sunscreen, as well as a dish to pass.
We expect this to be a park gathering to make open air fellowship easier.
Bring your Pilgrims Guide, name tag, cross and green Palanca, looking forward to our time of fellowship and encouragement!
Child care will be difficult if everyone goes to a different activity, so we will only offer an activity that is close to the shelter. If you or your child wants to do something other than this close activity, please make your own arrangements.
