A Service of Nine

Lessons & Carols

A Service of Nine Lessons & Carols

December 8th, 5pm

First held at King's College in Cambridge, London on Christmas Eve in 1918, this service has been heard and held in various forms around the world ever since. It has been broadcast from King's College ever year, with the exception of 1930, since 1928. According to Dean Milner-White wherever the service is heard and however it is adapted, whether the music is provided by choir or congregation, the pattern and strength of the service, derive from the lessons and not the music. ‘The main theme is the development of the loving purposes of God ...’ seen ‘through the windows and words of the Bible’.

 

Please join us for our adaption of this lovely Christmas service!

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

We would love to have you join us as we celebrate the first Advent of Christ. This will be the last sermon in the series focusing on the Book of Ruth that Pastor Zach has been preaching on through this Advent season. We hope to see and rejoice with you!


Annual Congregational Potluck & Meeting 

Sunday, January 19th, Potluck - 11:30am, Business Meeting - 12:30pm

If you are a member of Edgington EPC, you are strongly encouraged to attend our annual meeting. If you have been attending Edgington EPC, not yet a member, but would like to learn more about who we are, what we do, where we invest the financial treasure that God so richly blesses us with, the ministries we support, and a whole host of other information, this meeting is for you!

Immediately following the worship service this morning, a potluck will be held in the church basement. Please bring a dish to share. After we have eaten together, we will gather again in the sanctuary to go through the Annual Report and give God all the glory for what He has allowed us to be a part of for His Kingdom work.

We look forward to gathering with you!


28th Stated Meeting of the Rivers & Lakes Presbytery

Friday, January 24th - Saturday, January 25th

Come January 2020, we will be hosting the Rivers & Lakes 28th Stated Meeting! We had a wonderful time and turnout when we hosted in 2016, and we are very much looking forward to receiving all of the Teaching and Ruling Elders from our region into our church home. We can also look foward to several missionaries joining us, and EPC WO is hosting their own conference in conjunction with the Stated Meeting. We hope to have a full house with much business, fellowship, and worship taking place!

 

We are praying for safe travel weather and that all will go smoothly for everyone attending and volunteering. With that in mind we will be needing volunteers! Please contact the church office, 309-795-1713, if you could assist on either day, at anytime. We will need a variety of people throughout both days covering a variety of needs.


If you are a TE or RE from within the R&L Presbytery reading this, I have attached the advance letter that was sent out by our clerk mid-November, in case you missed it.
