Join Us at Bunco Night!

Bunco

All are invited to join Region 2 for an evening of fun and fellowship on Saturday, November 16, 2019. Gather the family, some friends, your youth group. This entertaining, somewhat frenzied dice game is so easy to learn, anyone can play!

The doors at St. Paul UCC in WATERLOO will open at 6:30 pm, and the game will begin at 7 pm. This event game has moved to a new venue, so make sure you show up at the correct St. Paul UCC! The cost to play is just $10 per person–there’s more. There will also be a 50/50 drawing and a purse auction.

Funds raised go to support ministry at DuBois Center. Save the date and spread the word! Click here for a flyer to share.

Spring Cleaning

Are you spring cleaning? Your trash could be our treasure!
Each year, DuBois Center has a seemingly-odd list of items we are collecting for use at camp, during retreats and more. If you have any of these objects gathering dust somewhere, we would love to give them a good home!
● Pool Cues: Ours are old and in disrepair. We have a table in the game room that is used by weekend guests and during inclement weather.
● Puzzle Pieces: If you have old puzzles with missing pieces of any size, we can put them to good use. They are fun additions to our stash of craft supplies. With a summer camp theme of “Peace Works” – the possibilities are almost endless.
● Scrabble Letters, Buttons & Ribbon: More great additions to our Craft Grotto!
● Glass Jars or Containers: We are looking for ones that are 16 ounces or smaller for a variety of projects.
Items may be delivered to DuBois Center or the Illinois South Conference office in Highland. If this doesn’t work for you, contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 619-787-2202 to make other arrangements. Thank you!

“I Spy” is on the Road Again

I Spy
I’ve got my tickets! Do you?! Each year, the Happy Quilters of St. John UCC, Mascoutah stitch and promote an amazing youth quilt to support DuBois Center. This year’s “I SPY” treasure is based on the popular books of picture riddles. It is 70 x 80 inches of fun created from 120 different fabrics!
Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. The church matches what the Happy Quilters raise, so each dollar you donate is two dollars for DuBois Center.
The traveling quilt still has a few stops to make before the grand display at the 40th Annual Quilt Show at St. John UCC on April 27. It you can’t catch it live, click here for tickets, then print and mail them to the church with a check payable to “Happy Quilters.”
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Final tour stops:
   Sun, March 24 – St. Peter’s UCC, Okawville
   Sun, April 7 – Christ UCC, Dupo
   Sat, April 27 – 40th Annual Quilt Show at St. John UCC, Mascoutah

Calling all Quilters!

Quilt Image

For over a decade, a quilt drawing has been a significant piece of the annual DuBois Center Fall Festival. In recent years, we have been blessed to have two or more art quality quilts donated to the drawing each year, which together have raised between $1,500 and $2,500 annually.

The quilts are typically donated by local church quilting groups and other friends of DuBois Center – would you or your quilting group be interested in donating a quilt for the 2019 Fall Festival? Queen size quilts seem to be the most popular, and those with designs appealing to a wide audience and made with love and prayers are perfect.

Ideally, the quilts begin traveling to local churches in August, so a July completion date works well. Please contact the DuBois Center office at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202 for more information. We’d love to talk to you about the possibilities.
