Noisy Offering

Cookies Needed
Our freezer needs cookies for Sunday Morning’s Coffee Hour! You can also sign up to host coffee hour on the bulletin board just outside the kitchen.

New Generation Singers in Concert!
We are really thrilled to announce that on Saturday, July 13, RUMC will be hosting The New Generation Singers, a youth choir from St. Joseph, MO, in concert. 
Host Homes Needed:

The New Generation singers will be here in a little over a month!  Let's show them real Central Illinois hospitality and welcome them into our homes the night of July 13 after their concert at RUMC!  Like nuns and animals on the ark, they come in pairs!  If you have room for two, four, or six young people to lay their heads for the night, you can sign up to do so this Sunday at worship.  They bring their own pillows and sleeping bags! If you would like to see the brand of young people they are, go to www.ngsingers.com and click "Host Us" at the top banner, and watch the promotional videos and read the article titled "Uncommon Character."  You will not be sorry to be so blessed!
Mission Team Opportunity
July 24 from 4:30-7pm The Mission Team will be helping at the Central Illinois Foodbank. Everyone from the church who is 12years old or older is welcome to join us! Contact April Patek for more information.
