Revelation 7:16  
“For this reason they are before the throne of God, 
    and worship him day and night within his temple, 
    and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter them. 
They will hunger no more, and thirst no more; 
    the sun will not strike them, 
    nor any scorching heat; 
for the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd, 
    and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, 
and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” 

Father of mercies,
as you made water spring from desert rock,
cause streams of compassion to pour
from hearts of stone;
that they be turned to hearts of flesh,
and all who thirst might have their fill.
In the name of Jesus, from whose pierced
side flowed living water.

In response to the recent Health Advisory issued by Peoria City/County Health Department describing rising levels of COVID cases and concerns, the planned outdoor worship service has been cancelled. Worship will still take place live at 6pm, but with worship leadership only. It will be recorded and available for viewing by 8am on Sunday, July 26.
This decision is not taken lightly but very seriously as we strive to follow health officials recommendations and cautions. We do this because we love one another and want what’s best for one another. In this time of pandemic, that means refraining from indoor as well as outdoor gatherings of larger sized groups.

The drive by farewell for Kristen will still take place on Sunday beginning at 10:30am as we will remain in our cars. Thank you for your cooperation.
