Celebrating Ministries Reception
Prior to Annual Meeting
RSVP online
There are churches and pastors whose hearts have been singing for 5 - 180 years. Illinois South Conference wants to celebrate them at a reception prior to Annual Meeting.
The "Celebrating Your Ministry" reception will be a Conference wide event to celebrate church and pastoral ministry anniversaries as well as a time to fellowship with one another. Members of all Illinois South Conference churches are invited to attend the reception on Friday, October 25, 2019 at Trinity UCC, 47 North Douglas Avenue, Belleville, Illinois from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.
At the reception, we will acknowledge all anniversaries and a certificate will be given to them.
Instead of a charge to attend, a love offering will be taken to defray the costs of the refreshments. Registration is requested so that we might plan accordingly for our guests. Please RSVP for the "Celebrating Your Ministry" reception on the Friday, October 25 to Christy Pursell at 618-654-2125 or cpursell@iscucc.org by Oct 1.
