Thanksgiving Performance:


For all those whom wish to join:


The community choir for the Thanksgiving service (to be held at St. John's Lutheran) will rehearse at Union Congregational the following days and times:


1. Sunday Nov.5 at 11:45 a.m.
2. Thursday Nov. 9 at 6:30 p.m.
3. Wednesday Nov. 15 at 7:00 p.m.
4. Thursday Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m.



All those planning to sing are asked to attend at least 2 practices as one of the anthems has some "tricky" timing.

Anyone with questions can call the office at Union Congregational 815-498-2277 or call St. John's Lutheran Office to find out more information and whom else you can contact.

Thank you! We hope to see some of you at practice
