HEEDING the call...Find My Scattered Sheep!

We need your help reaching Saints who live in (or near) the greater Chicago area.  This outreach applies to ALL members of the church formerly known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and includes those who may have been disenfranchised by theological differences or other reasons. 

Many of you are still in contact with them.  They may be worshipping in other denominations, the Community of Christ, or may have ceased worshipping completely.

A special worship service to bring these Saints together will be held on May 2, 2010. This service will extend a hand of friendship with open hearts and arms. By worshiping together we hope to set aside our differences and find unity in the Spirit by focusing on our Savior and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ministry will be provided by members of the Quorum of Seventy. After the sermon, a Q&A session will be held. A reception will follow the service for additional fellowship.

When: May 2nd, 2010 at 2:00PM. 
Location: St John's United Church of Christ, 1475 W. Algonquin Rd., Palatine, IL 60067-1210.

For additional information contact: Br Kohn at:; (847) 560-0054

Please make this outreach service a matter of prayer.

Neil Simmons resigns as of April 25, 2010

After many years of faithful service and leadership Seventy Neil Simmons will be stepping down. Although this will be very difficult for the saints to accept, we must trust in Jesus Christ the head to provide what is needed for continued growth and revival in the Church and work.
