Adult Bible Study

What's in a name? When it comes to the name of God, quite a lot actually. In a world where we find people creating God in their own image, studying God's names can remind us we are created in God's image, and what we called to always be. One of the best ways to know God's try character and grow closer to God is to study his names.

Starting on October 4th, and continuing on October 11th, October 25th, November 8th, and November 22nd, we'll be studying the names of God using a book by Melissa Spoelstra called "The Names of God - His Character Revealed." We'll gather in the Middle Room at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday morning or downstairs depending upon the number of people who gather. All adults are welcome.

After many prayers, and a heavy heart, it has been decided to cancel all indoor activities of our Annual Fall Festival on October 10, 2020. However, we will still have our outdoor yard sale. Please start gathering your treasures. Bring them to the church starting September 27th. Please keep the church and the community in your prayers.

Share the Harvest Table

posted Sep 9, 2020, 2:40 PM by Christ United Church of Christ Dupo, Illinois   [ updated Sep 9, 2020, 2:40 PM ]

Whether you brought in your garden's summer surplus or made a monetary donation as you took some vegetables home, you helped make the Share the Harvest table a huge success again this year. (Maybe it was that bumper crop of cantaloupe that was in church a couple of Sundays.) Due to your generous contributions, we will  be sending a donation to DuKare Food Pantry. GOOD GOING! Since hunger never stops and the need is even greater this year, you can rest assured that DuKare will put our donation to good use.
Thanks for participating in this hunger mission of our church.

Calling all singers. The Praise Choir needs you the first Sunday of the month to join us in singing a familiar hymn in church. No musical talent required, just a love of singing. Please join us on the first Sunday of the month at 9:15 a.m. for a short practice to run through our selection for the morning. We will practice the proper social distancing while standing in front of the church as we sing. Hope to see you all soon in church. If you have any questions please get in touch with me.

Guidelines For Worship and Gathering Again

posted Jul 3, 2020, 7:57 PM by Christ United Church of Christ Dupo, Illinois   [ updated Jul 3, 2020, 7:57 PM ]

The Consistory and Worship Board have put together the following guidelines in an attempt to safely, and with a caring spirit, allow for worship to happen in this house of God, in these CO-VID days.

1) If you aren't feeling well, please stay at home. We'd love to see everyone, but perhaps it would be best to wait until the next Sunday.

2) Bring your mask with you to worship; if you don't have a mask the church will have one for you to use and keep. Everyone is strongly encouraged to wear a mask during worship for their sake and the sake of others.

3) Use the front door only for entrance and exit; it will be propped open before and after church. Hand sanitizer stations will be available at the bottom of the stairs by the entrance and at the top of the stairs near the entry to the sanctuary.

4) The water fountains will be shut off and we ask that you please avoid the restrooms if at all possible. Bottled water will be available to all who want it.

5) The Freight Elevator will be used due to distance and space requirements. The Freight Elevator is located in the front of the church.

6) No congregating in the hallway; please go straight to your pew when entering.

7) One Usher will be around the entry way to the sanctuary. The usher will remain socially distant: offering greetings/welcome; directing traffic; answering questions.

8) Only sit in pews where bulletins will already be pre-placed. Ribbon will designate where people will sit and not sit.

9) The Offering plates will be placed by the entrance to the sanctuary where offering can be dropped in. Please drop in your offering as you enter or leave the church

10) Pastor will verbally dismiss pews starting from the back.

11) Please leave your pew and exit the church. If you would like to congregate/visit, please do so outside.

12) No child care/nursery will be provided during church. Children should stay with those they came with.
