If you went to the Summer Retreat and were planning to give something towards its costs but haven’t yet, be sure to bring your check this Sunday.

This Sunday (7/31) is our last Sunday at The Meeting Place on Taylor!

After the service we will all load up our cars with whatever we can fit and move it two blocks over to our new space at 1443 W. Roosevelt. Everything must go – chairs, baptismal, refrigerator, equipment, supplies, etc…

Please pack a lunch or plan to run out and get something and then stick around and help.

If you have keys to 1417 W. Taylor, please bring them on Sunday and we will collect them.

Also, we could still use many more people to come out and help paint the exterior of The Meeting Place on Roosevelt tomorrow (Saturday) night at 6:00 PM!

We could use anyone and everyone to come help paint the outside of The Meeting Place on Roosevelt this Saturday (7/30) at 6:00 PM. We’ll also be cleaning up the outside (pulling weeds, planting flowers, etc…).

Please let Nathan know if you plan to be there.

We could use more volunteers on our Worship Teams (musicians, vocalists, sound, slides…). If you’re interested, contact Adam at times_of_grace at hotmail dot com.

If you weren’t able to make it last weekend to the Summer Retreat or you were there but want to revisit it, the talks are available now online. Click ‘Special Messages’.

Painting tonight at The Meeting Place on Roosevelt will start at 8:00 PM instead of 7:00.

If you can help paint The Meeting Place on Roosevelt this week, please email Lindsey at lindsey.avink.

We’ll be working the following times:

Tuesday 7pm

Wednesday 2pm

Wednesday 7pm


The retreat starts tonight!

For those who can’t make it to the Friday or Saturday activities, we hope to at least see you there for Sunday morning service (don’t show up at The Meeting Place).

See you in Streator!

The painting crew working on The Meeting Place on Roosevelt is kind of slim. If anyone is free and would like to come by tonight from 7:00 – 10:00 PM and paint, your help would be much appreciated!

This Sunday our service will be held at 10:45 AM at Streator Baptist Camp in Streator, IL (directions

). DON’T SHOW UP AT The Meeting Place!
