UPDATE – MAY 30, 2020

 We have been diligent in keeping up on the ever changing restrictions placed on churches in Illinois.  The current status is that all restrictions have been lifted, thus, we cannot be criminally charged for having services, which is within our 1st Amendment right.   However, the “recommendations” by the health department remain the same, i.e. avoid in-person activity and continue to hold remote services, or allow congregants to meet outdoors.   We have been diligent in our efforts to protect our religious freedoms, while protecting our congregants from the risks presented by COVID 19.   Cognizant of these guidelines, we will continue to offer services in the church while practicing social distancing, as well as continue to stream our services on line.  For those of our congregants that are elderly or may have underlying health issues that make them more susceptible, we would encourage you to continue to watch our services on line.  


UPDATE – MAY 17, 2020

URGENT! Citizens of Illinois

We Need Your Help – Time Sensitive

Dear Brother & Sister in Christ,
Governor Pritzker has called an emergency legislative session for Wednesday, May 20 (this coming Wednesday). On his special agenda, ALL issues will directly affect you, and many are related in some way to the COVID-19 pandemic. One item sought is to grant a significant increase of gubernatorial power.
There is an effort to make fundamental changes to the Illinois Constitution to permanently grant the Governor of Illinois greater power and to be able make changes without deferring to the Legislature. 
There is more on his agenda about going beyond the already extended stay, but … WHAT CAN YOU DO?
BEFORE the end of Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Contact as many Legislators and Representatives by either Email or Phone. (There is not enough time to write a letter.)
Please reach outside of your personal delegates. Contact as many as you can.
This is URGENT.
What can you say or email to the Legislators & Representatives? State that you are a citizen of the State of Illinois and you expect them to represent you as a citizen. (Remember, they work for YOU!) Email or phone and say that you want them to:
  1. Vote NO against granting an overreach of the Governor’s power.
  2. Vote NO against making changes to the Illinois Constitution granting additional power to the Governor.
  4. Vote: “NO” to Mandatory Vaccination against COVID-19
  5. Vote: “NO” to Mandatory Testing of COVID-19
  6. Also, contact your Federal Representative. Say you want them to Vote “NO” to H.R.6666
Please do not delay. Contact your Legislators and Representatives by May 19, 2020. Thank you! This is URGENT!
