It's time for a new church directory! Member Connections is working with Universal Church Directories to put together a new directory. We need you to sign up for a photography time slot and get your picture taken! You can do this by going to the website (ucdir.com) and clicking on the "Photography Appointment Scheduling Login." Then, you need to enter the church code: il244 and the password: photos. Next, you'll pick a time slot that works best in your schedule to get your picture taken. The dates for photography sessions are September 20, 21, & 30 from 2:00 pm - 8:30 pm and October 1 from 9:30 am-4:30pm.
Every Wednesday during the school year, we have programming for children (grades K-5) and youth (grades 6-12).

A well-known story from the Gospels tells of the time Jesus and His
disciples fed more than 5,000 men, women, and children. Jesus is
at it again but this time He’ll be working through His followers at
First United Presbyterian Church to feed 14,000 people through a
program called Rise Against Hunger.
On Wednesday, October 5, starting at 5:45 pm, in the FUPC
Gym, volunteers will gather to package meals using Rise Against
Hunger’s time-tested process that delivered 27 million meals to 29
countries, including the United States, in 2021. Rise Against Hunger
meal-packing events provide a fast and fun way to lend meaningful
help to people in critical need. The process uses an assembly line to
package all 14,000 meals in just about two hours. It’s a great way to
make a real difference in a very short time.
Since 2005, Rise Against Hunger volunteer groups have packaged
nearly 540 million meals, relying on groups of any size in locations
across the world to package the meals — this is where First United
comes into play. The packaging process is efficient, quick, and
anyone of any age can take part. Jesus will be present in the Spirit
as First United feeds the hungry, but we’ll need the congregation to
come in person to make the event a success. We hope those coming
will consider inviting others too. There will be opportunities to ask
questions and RSVP between worship services through October 2, or you can sign-up online (click here), but whether one has signed up or not, all will be welcome.
