It’s amazing what a group of Illinois South Conference confirmands and chaperones can accomplish in just 90 minutes!
The crew attending the ISC Confirmation Retreat took the service aspect of their weekend to heart. Happy horses are now munching on green hay because one team unloaded and stacked 640 bales. The wood shed was also emptied, reorganized and is now ready for winter. And posts and rails were painted for upcoming fencing projects.
Positive attitudes, willing hearts and many hands definitely make the load lighter for all. THANKS for all your hard work!
Dubois Center’s 2019 Fall Festival is tomorrow, Sunday, October 6!
This is a great event to share with church members and the community! Yummy food, live music, crafters and artisans, hayrides, horses, boat tours, hands-on crafts for kids – there’s something for the whole family!
Check out this link to the event page on our website and you’ll find all our Fall Festival information, flyers and more in one place.
Fall Festival and the much-anticipated Quilt Drawing are THIS SUNDAY (you don’t need to be present to win).
This year, two beautiful and unique queen-size quilts have been donated. One is a stunning block pattern in steel blue and tan. The second is an elegant log cabin design in colors from the Southwest. With these works of art, we hope to raise over $2,000.
You can help by spreading the word – share this opportunity with your friends and family! A flyer with photos and tickets are available. Completed tickets and payment must be received at DuBois Center by 4:15pm Sunday, Oct 6 to be included in the drawing.
Basement, garage or spare room overflowing with stuff that you haven’t looked at in years? We can help! DuBois Center needs your COOL stuff! Stylish purses and accessories – GREAT! Gift baskets and classic toys – SUPER! Classic decor and holiday decorations – PERFECT!
Donations must have a sale value of at least $5 each and be clean; new, nearly new OR classic; easy to carry and appealing. All proceeds support the ministry of DuBois Center.

Time is running out, but you can still register for the annual DuBois Center Mother-Daughter Retreat, October 18-20, 2019. This event is open to all the great women and girls in your life. Escape for a weekend of fun, laughter, movement, joy-filled worship and favorite traditional camp activities.
Fall Festival, DuBois’ annual fundraiser, can’t happen without YOU!
There are lots of ways to help – serve food or serve as a cashier, catch pontoon boats or walk horses at the arena, drive a tractor or captain a boat, take tickets or sell them, assist with crafts or melt wax for candles, set up before the event or stay and clean up after!
DuBois Center’s annual Fall Festival is powered by the talent, sweat, love and cheer of scores of volunteers. YOU CAN HELP TOO! Time commitments of 2 hours or longer work best.
To volunteer, contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202. Send or leave a message with your name, areas of interest, phone number and best times for you to volunteer.
Thank you in advance!
