Wanetta Evans has been in the hospital twice this last month with pneumonia and double pneumonia. Currently she is guaranteed in a special unit at Alden Place. After one more week, she will be back in her room, 316 Bed 2 and will have her same telephone number, 815-230-8700, at that time. She misses her church family so cards or phone calls would be appreciated.


 Please keep our church in your prayers as we are in the financial crisis and as we seek for ways to encourage our church members to remain true to tithing, and to the building fund, and seek to creating fundraisers.


Please send your prayers and concerns to Pastor Linny (email, text, phone call, etc.) or to

Cathy at the Office (815-436-2209) or drop off a note at the office). We appreciate your help

keeping up with the news of the families in our church.

Prayer Chains

At Hope UMC we have 2 active prayer chains: one on which we are connected by the intern et and another one for those without internet access who wish to participate in this ministry. Each week you will receive a message containing the Joys and Concerns from the Sunday worship and any special requests that arise during the week. If you are so led, we ask that you offer prayers for these individuals and situations. Please contact Pastor Linny or the church office if you have questions or wish to be included on one of the lists.

Methodist Church. Continued donations of Toilet Paper, Diapers, and Feminine Products (APRIL donation – Juice

bottles or cans that do not require refrigeration before opening) would be greatly appreciated. Please place them in

the blue bins in the hallway by the Church Office. Donations of money are always welcome to help in the purchase of

other food items.
