The ISC Outdoor Ministries Team (OMT) announces the 42nd annual Fall Festival at DuBois Center on Sunday, October 7th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Many of the traditional favorites for this autumn fundraiser will continue to be featured, if enough supervisors and volunteers come forward. We hope many will be able to participate as a volunteer, as a donor of food, items, or money, as a crafter, a musician, and/or a buyer.
Your church will receive more information this summer about the Fall Festival and updates will be printed periodically in the Weekly Connection. For more information, please contact Norma Borgmann (OMT Chairperson) at 618-533-1658 (H) or 618-292-4617 (C) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join Region 2 for an evening of fun and fellowship. This somewhat frenzied dice game is so easy to learn, anyone can play! Gather the family, some friends or your youth group for what’s sure to be a great time.
The event is THIS Saturday – February 24, doors open at St. Paul UCC in Columbia at 6:30 pm, and the game begins at 7 pm. Just $10 per person covers the cost to play.
A 50/50 drawing and silent auction with a variety of fun items will also be available, as well as the HUNGER ACTION challenge that will round out the evening. Snacks and soda available for purchase. Check out this flyer and share it with friends and neighbors. Funds raised support the ministry of DuBois Center; food items donated support a local food pantry. We hope to see you there!
Beautiful quilts are an integral part of DuBois Center’s annual Fall Festival. Each year, lovingly crafted treasures are donated for the quilt drawing. Our first quilt of the season has been donated and it’s beautiful! This charming star pattern quilt is twin-sized (66″ x 86″), hand-pieced and quilted. It was created and donated by Sarah Moore, a member at Bethel UCC in Cahokia. This is Sarah’s second Fall Festival quilt.
If you or your group would like to donate a quilt for this year’s drawing, contact Shirley at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202. Ideally, the second quilt would be queen-sized. Thanks for your support!
On this Saturday, April 22, St. John United Church of Christ in Mascoutah will host their 38th Annual Quilt Show.
